Comments 273

One of my favourite experiences last winter was snowshoeing through the Ancient Forest in Prince George and while I have yet to do this activity closer to home, I always hear people rave about the opportunities on the North Shore.

Snowshoeing in the Ancient Forest

Cypress Mountain offers a variety of snowshoeing experiences including the 4-hour Snowshoe Fondue Tour. Lead by an experienced guide, on this tour you will make your way through snow-dusted woods and sub-alpine meadows.

After working up an appetite, retire to Hollyburn Lodge to enjoy a mug of creamy hot chocolate or steaming spiced apple cider. Warm beverages are followed by a full fondue meal with salad and a cheese fondue with bread, steamed vegetables, and roast garlic potatoes. This is topped off with dessert consisting of a decadent chocolate fondue with fresh fruit and Angel Food cake.

      My favourite snow activity has to be setting up and starring in awesome xmas sweater photo shoots – without the snow background you can only achieve an 80% bad taste rating, which just isn’t high enough for me….!

    2. I’ve always wanted to go snowshoeing <3 <3

    3. Vanessa says:

      Showshoeing is awesome! Count me in please.

    4. Ine says:

      I love snowboarding, and up until 2 years ago, that probably was my favourite snow activity. But then I discovered snowshoeing and because we can take our dog with us (on most trails), this is definitely my new favourite snow activity.

    5. Amy W. says:

      Ice skating would be my favourite winter activity!

    6. T King says:


    7. Christine says:

      I so want to check this out!

    8. T King says:

      i mean tobogganing!

    9. Tairalyn says:

      My Favorite Snow activity would have to be Tubing however I have yet to go Snow Shoeing to know if I would enjoy that more. I have a feeling that if every Snow Shoeing experience ended in Hot Chocolate, Apple Cider and a Cheese Fondue it would no doubt be my all time favorite.

      I too will tweet about this Giveaway {@QueenEarlGrey}

      When I moved to Vancouver 6 years ago, I found that snowshoeing was the only winter sport I could afford as a student, so I’ve stuck with it and just love it!!

    228. Amrit says:

      Has to be snowball fights (I know it’s not a sport or anything, but makes you feel like a big kid again).

    229. Heather says:

      Snow rugby! Even the biggest tackle doesn’t hurt when you land in a pile of powder!

      Second to that, though, I’d say skiing. I’ve been going with my family since I was very young, and it’s an activity that we can continue to share as we all get older.

      Thanks for setting up this draw–if I’m lucky enough to win, I’m excited to take my girlfriend on a snowshoe trek. We love exploring new trails!
