Canada is a big country, the second largest by land area. This means there is plenty to see when you strap on some snowshoes and head out into the wilderness.
Aside from the aforementioned spots in the east of the country, there are plenty of snowshoeing opportunities all over this continent-sized place.
Alberta and British Columbia are two other snowshoeing hotspots. In the former, Jasper National Park and Banff National Park are excellent places to head out on a snowshoeing adventure.
In the latter, Yoho National Park, Glacier National Park of Canada and Garibaldi Provincial Park are all excellent spots for snowshoeing.
Outside of these places, there are plentiful snowshoeing opportunities throughout Canada.
Throughout winter in Canada, you can expect temperatures well-below freezing and moderate snowfall. Some areas are drier than others, but all of Canada is blanketed in snow by the end of December.
