snowshoeing

From mid-December to end of March, the hills in Kamloops are blanketed in snow that provides dozens of trailheads to snowshoe uplands forests and wide open spaces. Pack a thermos of hot chocolate and make a day out of it or break a snowy trail in an afternoon under bluebird skies. Snowshoe rentals are available.
