We booked the "Snowshoeing on Top of the World at Sunshine Village" on december 27th with 2 guides (Matt and Jen). It was FABULOUS. The 2 guides were very friendly, PROFESSIONAL and passionate. They put safety first as they decided to do kind of a hybrid of a hike due to the conditions (extremely cold that day, -33 C), without altering the experience. At first we were pretty worried because of a very bad experience we had a day prior (fell into a frozen lake at -40 C with an irresponsible guide) and also due to the extreme conditions of the day (-33 C). My mom was even more worried as she was the oldest and was afraid to slow the group down... She even thought of not doing the hike at all. When we told Jen, she immediately reassured us and especially my mom, as she told her that we would stay in group and she would never be left alone since there were 2 guides. She also never rode a chairlift before, and Jen took all the time and precautions needed to ensure that she stayed safe. We also emailed them 2 days before and they answered pretty quickly. As we had more questions, we also emailed them the morning of the hike and they answered immediately. As for the hike itself, the view was stunning. We even got to know a little bit about the place, and Jen and Matt were really good at answering questions we had. We could observe some animal trail and Matt had little cards to show us what the animals that made the trail looked like. In terms of difficulty, this hike is considered "moderate to strenuous". My mom (62 y.o.) found it quite hard but enjoyed it so much as he could take her time and stop to catch her breath when she needed. I found it quite easy (26 y.o. F) but enjoyed it as well since I could run and play around. In conclusion, I HIGHLY recommend this hike even in the winter, as it is suitable for all physical conditions and you are guaranteed to be safe at all times, and a LOT of fun ! We definitely will be booking other hikes with them again, winter or summer !!

Babs and Adrienne were wonderful guides. They met us on time, we’re friendly, knowledgeable about the mountain, and fun. They took us on a great snowshoe at Sunshine meadows.. it was beautiful! There was so much white powder everywhere. We had a nice stop part way where we enjoyed some cookies and hot chocolate.

Thank you for your review! The snow has been fantastic for snowshoeing this winter, and we agree the views can't be beat at Sunshine Meadows. We are fortunate to have Babz and Adrienne with us this season, and will be sure to pass along your thanks to them. We hope you can join us soon for a future adventure in Banff

An excellent multi day experience with White Mountain Adventures. First couple of days with a group and then the last day with Jennifer who was amazing. Totally professional and also totally personable. Jennifer had a lot of knowledge of the geography, mountain trails, history, flora and fauna. A lot of fun all the way around. I can't wait to return and do more :)
