Rummel Ridge Snowshoeing with WWE
March 7, 2020 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm
Hello ladies!! Join us for our March snowshoe event to Rummel Ridge in Kananaskis country!
Let’s meet at the Barrier Lake Visitor Information Centre parking Lot. Please bring snowshoes as this hike is snowy and maybe ice in the winter, lots of warm layers, and snacks.
For safety reasons there is a cap of a maximum of 12 hikers. Avalanche conditions and the avalanche forecast in the Bow Valley area were extreme lately and so, looking for a little safe adventure we turned our sights on the outer mountains in what the locals call K-Country (Kananaskis).
