My boyfriend had never snowshoed, so I wanted his first time to be amazing. Thanks to Nadine and Great Divide the entire experience for both of us was absolutely fantastic! We'll not only be back for snowshoeing next year, but look forward to guided hike opportunities this summer!

We took our first ever snowshoeing adventure with Nadine. She had a perfect plan to meet our physical limitations (one 12 wk post hip replacement, the other 6 wk post rotator cuff repair) that was a privately guided terrific package of: tremendous fun, some great exercise (not too strenuous for either of us!), interesting information that was not limited to...

My husband Ross and I had a wonderful time with Joel yesterday as he guided us from the Lake Louise parking lot up into the subalpine forest. I had snowshoed last year with Nadine, and this was my third tour with Great Divide, so I knew what fun was in store. My husband on the other hand, had never snowshoed,... More

My husband and I took a guided snowshoeing trip with Nadine last weekend (mid-March). I already expected it to be fun based on the reviews, but it exceeded my expectations. We identified so many animal tracks. (How could I have not noticed them before??) We learned so many interesting facts about the animals and the area. And even though it... More

Our privately guided snowshoeing tour was a delight, full of information on flora and fauna with added humour. Nadine was understanding of my limitations. We loved the hot chocolate and power bars, it came at the right time. We enjoyed it so much, we hired our own snowshoes and had another challenging trail walk, will do again.

My family and I went on a 4 hour privately guided snowshoeing tour with Joel this past weekend. It was a great experience, we had never been snowshoeing before and Joel provided the perfect amount of physical difficulty that we were looking for. We learned a lot about the area as we went and were shown the various impacts the... More

Four of us had a great few hours of snowshoeing. It was very well lead by Joel and the trip was broken up perfectly by interesting information about the area. It did not seem like hard work as the scenery was amazing. I would recommend for anyone.

My boyfriend and I travelled to the rockies in June 2013. At the time, the area was affected by the Alberta floods making it very difficult to get into Banff via Canmore. We emailed Nadine thinking we would have to miss out on visiting Banff but she was so helpful, she kept us up to date on road openings and... More

Had a great time snowshoeing with Joel. Apart from the incredible knowledge he has about the place, he was very accommodating, respectful, patient, and genuinely nice (very Canadian!). My wife was new to the cold and wasn't so comfortable after a while. He immediately provided her a hand warmer and throughout the trip made sure that she stayed comfortable by... More
