What should I wear hiking in mountain?

Mountain weather can be very unpredictable. That’s why layering is key! Learn more about the must haves and the layers to wear to keep warm and safe.

Why is it important to be prepared for any outdoor adventure?

Better be safe than sorry! You want to be prepared for the best and the worst. Surprises are fun but you want to make sure you stay safe and you come back home at the end of the day.

Why should I be ready for any type of weather?

Because mountain weather can change within minutes depending on where you are and what the forecast is and the human body without protection is not very much against the elements.. is it sun, wind, rain, hail or snow.

What should I bring with me for safety?

We had a great day. 3 couples met Nathalie in Banff and followed her to our hike location. So scenic and she was easy to get along with and had all kinds of info about the area. She dug a pit and made some snow chairs and served us a wonderful cheese fondue. All while sitting in the sun with the view of the gorgeous mountains. Such a fun day!!

– Maureen

Loved our adventure with Nat!! Lovely area to snowshoe and that cheese fondue yum! Nat was super thorough with all the paperwork and was extremely knowledgeable about the area! Would highly recommend booking with her and would do another adventure with her too!

– Loren

Had a really fun time exploring a new (to me) area of Banff via snowshoe. Nathalie was able to accommodate our puppy, who also had a ton of fun. There was a good amount of fondue and snacks, and Nathalie was super knowledgeable about the area. She was a fantastic guide. Would highly recommend a snowshoe & fondue adventure with Nathalie.
