Winter Backpacking Ideas
I'm an experienced 3-season backpacker looking for recommendations for a 1 night winter backpacking trip in the Rockies with some friends. Looking for something with low avalanche risk and within about 2 hours driving time of Calgary. Last winter we snowshoed into The Point campground in Kananaskis and really enjoyed it. Loved that they provided fire wood at that campsite so we could have a fire. Are there any other trails you would recommend? A few options that come to mind are Lake Minnewanka, somewhere along Highway 66 past the winter gates (either walking, snowshoeing, or biking the road depending on snow conditions), or Quaite Valley. I'm sure there are other options but I can't find much info on winter backpacking online. Thanks!
