  • The WMA Snowshoeing on Top of the World program takes place in backcountry alpine terrain and presents serious safety risks for any person not dressed properly or sufficiently fit to complete the entire walk. Once a group leaves the top chairlift station, and begins walking downhill, there is no turning back for the group. Therefore:
  • Warm hat and gloves
  • Winter coat
  • Warm pants – not jeans
  • Winter boots or hiking boots
  • Guests must be reasonably fit and able to walk at least 3 kilometres on snowshoes through potentially deep powder snow.

Our guide, Jeff, from White Mountain Adventures, did a fabulous job getting five women outfitted, up and down the mountain. When our meeting was delayed, Jeff advised of the delay. Cookies and hot chocolate were served part way through our trek and were much appreciated! While

Thank you for your glowing review! Those cookies are fresh baked for us by an artisan baker here in Banff. They are a big hit on all of our winter tours. We are super happy to have Jeff with us again this year! He is a pro at helping folks new to the mountains and new to snowshoeing to get the most out of their day. We hope to see you again on a future adventure in Banff! Dennis Breymann White Mountain Adventures.

This has been my favorite tour I have taken in Banff, the guide was so nice and friendly. Her stories were the best. The snowshoeing was perfect but tired. I highly recommend this activity to everyone who is visiting Banff! Must do!

Thank you for your glowing review. Your guide would have been Jess on this day. We are so lucky and proud to have long term local guides like Jess working with us.

Went on a snowshoe tour with George. He was very thoughtful and knowledgeable!!! He is also a very patient guide. This tour is a must go for everybody who can tolerate mild-moderate physical activity because the snow can get quite deep! But otherwise, please go on the tour!

Hi Candiceincanada, The Snowshoe on Top of the World at Sunshine Meadows really is an experience like no other. There's no better way to get a feel for true backcountry experience than with the help of Sunshine Village's gondola and lift system to take us to the edge of the ski area, where it is simply endless terrain and bottomless powder. You can always stay in the guide's tracks for a break from the deep pow ;) I will be sure to let George know you send your best! With you in adventure, White Mountain Adventures Dennis Breymann Sales Manager

My wife and I had no definite plans for what to do during our week in Banff. Due to an toe injury, she could not ski and this was an outstanding replacement for a trip to the top of Sunshine. Our guide Tara was very friendly and knowledgeable. We were a last minute morning add

My fiancé and I always look to do something on the adventurous side when we go on vacation, and we decided to book this trip since we are not skiers! We wanted to go up on the mountain and enjoys the snow-views without having to ski. Our guide picked us up from our hotel along

Hi Adrian, Thank you for your story of your day Snowshoeing on Top of the World. As you stated, the terrain we travel on this program is true deep backcountry. Though we access with ease with the help of Sunshine Village Gondola, there is not a sole around us once we step out of bounds, and so we must ensure all clients are dressed accordingly. We have turned away more than one for wearing jeans. Running shoes are also a no-no (we are up past our knees in snow even with the snowshoes). I love running downhill in the snowshoes. Once losing the fear of falling you can do just about anything! With you in adventure, White Mountain Adventures Dennis Breymann
