Snowcat Snowshoeing Tour was FANTASTIC!
Mar 2021
This tour experience definitely exceeded my expectations which were already high to begin with. Our guide was Alex and he was great from beginning to end. The snow conditions were amazing and if we forgot a detail Alex had us covered. You would never be able to do this without a guide as we went through restricted areas. The fresh powder was amazing and we played, raced, and rolled around trekking up and down the mountain. This company is super organized and professional. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend this tour, Alex as a guide and this company to anyone. Thank you!

MUST SEE/DO WHILE IN BANFF! (capital letters are an accurate depiction of our excitement)
Jan 2021
Stunning views. Fantastic time. Perfect snow conditions and sunny day. Excellent tour guide. Sparkling clean and great covid-protocols. What more can you ask for!?

To be honest, my expectations for snowshoeing were low. My thoughts: "Ok. walking in deep snow with heavy shoes at a ski hill. How exciting could this possibly be". Was I ever wrong! This EXCEEDED EXPECTATIONS beyond what I thought. We were the only ones out where our tour guide Sam took us. Not another person in sight. The views were breathtaking and we had perfect weather - the sun was shining the entire tour. I must say, the COVID protocols is fantastic with your company (even the business card was sealed in a bag!). We never felt uncomfortable in the tour because literally no one was around us except our guide, we were able to social distance, and masks were worn in the van for transportation (we were even picked up at our hotel). Thank you for keeping us all safe.

Sam taught us a lot on this trip about Alberta, snowshoeing, food recommendations etc. but the best part about it all was his friendliness and his passion for the outdoors. It was amazing to hear him talk about the outdoors and his love for it. I’ve been recommending this specific tour to everyone. I would definitely come back again!!

You have made our day! Thank you for sharing the story of your adventure with Sam and White Mountain Adventures. Snowshoeing is not typically known as an adrenaline sport to be fair. But for fun, laughs and good vibes, nothing beats a day of snowshoeing with your houshold up in the wide open spaces of Sunshine Meadows. We hope you can join us for a future adventure.

We had a fantastic day snowshoeing at Sunshine Meadows! The scenery is breathtaking! We had an absolute ton of untouched, fresh powder! Our guide Sam was so friendly and fun! He was also very knowledgeable of the area, so shared interesting facts with us during the tour. It was also a great workout!
We definitely recommend the tour to anyone looking for a unique snowshoeing experience at a beautiful location!!
Thank you for an amazing and sure to be memorable experience!!

What a day - great experience, fantastic guide.
Dec 2020
What a day! This was so much fun and I can't stop telling people about it. We had Sam as our guide and he was incredible - we started off getting a good briefing about snowshoeing (which you think is easy, it is.. but it's the "getting out of trouble" that Sam explained incredibly well).

As we ventured down into the bowl, he made sure to keep us educated about the snowfall, the trees and animals around us. He explained to us how to spot potential avalanches and why they happened. We understood the group and it's limitations and gave us a ton of breaks when we needed them.

When it was time to play - Sam was great at giving us areas where we would be able to play in deep snow, jump off ledges, we had some snowshoe races .. it was a blast.

Fantastic trip, AMAZING guide and a fun afternoon. We were spent by the time we got to the gondola to go back down.

Great day - thanks Sam!

Fantastic Scenery at 7500'+ Above Sea Level
Feb 2020
We booked our snowshoeing with White Mountain based upon reviews we saw here. Under the careful guidance of Marc C., we snow shoed from the top of the Great Divide ski lift across the Sunshine Meadows and down to the Sunshine Village Gondola - about 3 miles. The scenery was absolutely stunning, and we loved every minute of it. Our guide stopped frequently to point out interesting sights along the way, making the hike even more interesting. This was one of the highlights to our trip to the Canadian Rockies, and we highly recommend both this hike and this outfitter. Thanks again for a great afternoon, Marc!

Best thing we did on our trip to Banff!
Feb 2020
We can't say enough good about this trip. We were a little hesitant because we didn't know what to expect, but our guide Tara was so professional and really put everyone at ease. It was work, but it was such a wonderful experience on a truly blue-sky day. I told Tara I was going to recommend this trip to everyone I know. We can't wait to return to hike the Meadows in the summer for some before and after pics.

SO MUCH SNOW!
Feb 2020 • Friends
I recently joined White Mountains Adventures for their snowshoeing on top of the world tour at Sunshine Meadows. It was such a great day and our guides Jess and Chris were fantastic, they were full of fun facts and knowledge to share with us and took great care in making sure everyone was comfortable and enjoying themselves. I don’t think I’ve ever been in snow that deep! What a great day out!! Thank you.

Thank you for taking the time to write a review for Jess and Chris. Though snowshoeing is not really an adrenaline sport, I hear again and again that just being out in this beautiful area in such deep snow brings out the joy of being a kid again.

Great snowshoeing trip!
Feb 2020
Went on the Snowshoeing on Top of the World with May and it was spectacular! May was an amazing guide and had lots of great insight into the local cultures and ecosystem. There was extra gear in case anyone needed anything, and the whole expedition was well organized. Snowshoeing through the backcountry was great, and May even brought tea, hot chocolate, and cookies! The whole trek was fun and a good workout
