SNOW, it’s our favourite four letter word. Every Year we get piles of it. How many inches you ask? Actually, we measure our snow in feet, and most winters it’s so high we prefer to share it rather than shovel it. We also like to make things with it, like trails and tracks and moguls. We’ve discovered that it’s even good for holding up your ice-fishing rod just right. You might even spot the odd igloo, although we recommend one of our more comfortable hotel rooms, or cozy resorts.
The Porcupine Ski Runners offers a fully signed snowshoe trail system designed to suit everyone from experienced to novice. You’ll share the stunning beauty of the Boreal Forest with snow hares, partridge, snowy owls, lynx and the occasional moose in a never-ending winter wonderland that will leave you breathless. The Porcupine Ski Runners offers locker facilities and snowshoe rentals. Trail maps are available from their website.
