Show shoeing on Red Mountain.


If you ask us, snowshoeing is one of the most underrated sports of all time. And, if you want to snowshoe up a mellow side-slope or on a more challenging trail, rentals are readily available. The 16 cabins scattered around Strawberry Pass are quintessential Kootenays. These stylish, funky cabins with custom artwork on the stove doors were built by locals on Crown Land and are only for day use. Ever-popular with outdoorsy local families, you'll often see three generations of snow-sliders eating a bag lunch or firing up the wood stove in these special shelters.
