Events Description

You’ve never tried anything like this before! Go deep with us at Fortress Mountain this winter where our snowcat lift offers exclusive access to hidden terrain made famous in Hollywood blockbusters “The Revenant”, “inception” and “The Bourne Legacy”. Snowshoe through surreal wintery landscapes, towering peaks and pristine powder snow. Hot Chocolate & fresh-baked cookies included.

Your day begins with a shuttle ride up the closed access road at Fortress Mountain to an elevation of 2,100m and where the average annual snowfall is over 8 metres! Then board our snowcat for the overland journey deep into the Fortress Backcountry. Once you strap on your snowshoes, you’ll begin walking into a white wilderness of deep snow and alpine scenery.

Snowshoeing at Fortress Mountain is led by a professional and experienced guides. This adventure is ideally suited for people of average to good physical fitness and who have a sense of adventure and are prepared for any weather conditions.
