Experience a winter wonderland in the Okanagan! Most snowshoe trails are a 15 to 30 minute drive from downtown Vernon: location & difficulty will be based on the needs/desires of the group. We do private tours that are kid & dog friendly and you can choose between 1, 2, 3 hours or longer. We will meet at your accommodations or a great local coffee shop where you can power up with a nice cup of Java. I will ensure everyone has adequate clothing before heading off on our winter adventure. You will either follow me in your vehicle or travel with me in my 4x4. Once at the trailhead you will be outfitted with snowshoes, then we will set off. We will enjoy a beverage & snack at a back country cabin, a scenic viewpoint, or nestled in the trees. You will delight in the beautiful scenery that only winter in the Okanagan can offer. Local wildlife include deer, rabbit, coyotes, porcupine, raccoon, a variety of raptors and songbirds, and many other critters. Afterwards, I can show you the best local highlights, eateries, and entertainment the area has to offer.
I've been exploring & photographing the outdoors of the Okanagan for more than 30 years. I have avalanche training, ski patrol experience, and 32 years as a paramedic. I've guided wine tours in the Valley and biking & hiking tours into the back country. I enjoy Alpine skiing, snowboarding, kayaking, and competing in marathons, mtn. bike & adventure races, and Nordic ski events. My healthy lifestyle also includes canning, dehydrating & preserving foods and natural medicines from my organic garden, and cooking & developing my own gluten/dairy/egg-free recipes.
