Snowshoeing in the Callaghan Valley with Canadian Wilderness Adventures

Join local guiding company West Coast Wonders on our limited edition, guest-only snowshoe tour to Shadow Lake in the historical Soo Valley region of Whistler on Sunday January 17th, 2016.

Tour length from beginning to end is around 3 hours and is $49 + tax per person.

Book your places directly at the front desk or by emailling frontdesk@summitlodge.com. Please include the date and name of the tour you’d like to join and how many places you’d like to book. Your guide will take payment on the day via cash or credit card, and out of courtesy to your guide we have a 48 hour cancelation policy, please see below.

Why choose the Shadow Lake Snowshoe Adventure?

Perfectly crafted for 6 people at a time, this intimate snowshoe tour is an easy to moderate 2.5 hour adventure, and is just right for first time snowshoers, families, and groups of friends.

Your morning of adventure will begin at 9am in the hotel lobby where you’ll pick up your snowshoes and be greeted by your guide, Sean. You’ll then be driven a short 20 minute journey to the start of the snowshoe trail. As you make your way around the lake and along the old growth cedar loop, soaking up the mighty mountains, towering trees, and endless photo opportunities, Sean will share with you his wealth of knowledge of the area and its historical significance to the region.

At the end of the trail Sean will drive you back to the hotel for around 1pm, where you can return your snowshoes and grab a hot cup of cocoa before continuing on with the rest of your day.

How much is the Shadow Lake Snowshoe Adventure?

$49+ tax (regular price $105).

Sean founded his company, West Coast Wonders, out of his desire to get more people outdoors and enjoying the wild wonders of the west coast. His love for guiding is what drew him to partner with us to offer these guest-only tours at the very (very) special rate.

What is included in the Shadow Lake Snowshoe Adventure?

This snowshoe adventure includes a guided tour of Shadow Lake with Sean (owner and head guide at West Coast Wonders), snowshoe rental, and transportation to and from the hotel.

We have snowshoes in small, medium, and large. Please let front desk know when you’re booking your places if you’d like to reserve the two small pairs for children aged 5 – 10.

[/su_tab][su_tab title=”Level:”]All abilities are welcome (expect 2.5 hours of easy – moderate walking in deep snow).[/su_tab][su_tab title=”What to bring & wear:”]You’re going to be out in the snow for a few hours so ski gear is a good idea. Ski pants, ski jacket, layers (decide what layers to wear on the day, it’s best to look at valley temperatures on the morning of the tour), hiking/waterproof boots, and warm socks. Bring a backpack with water and snacks, as well as gloves, a hat, sunglasses, and a camera.

No denim. Snow sticks to denim and makes you cold, wet, and uncomfortable. [/su_tab][/su_tabs]
