Description

Following the success of his first snowshoeing guide, Snowshoeing in the Canadian Rockies (RMB, 2011), Andrew Nugara has now written the ultimate guide for those finding themselves on snowshoes for the first time.

A Beginner’s Guide to Snowshoeing in the Canadian Rockies describes over 40 great routes for new snowshoers. The trips extend from scenic Waterton in the far south to the breathtaking Columbia Icefield in the north section of Banff National Park. Stunning colour photos, maps and detailed route descriptions are provided for each trip, as well as level of difficulty, objective hazards and additional equipment requirements.

Whether you are looking for an easy, introductory day on flat terrain amid beautiful surroundings or something slightly more challenging, you will find it in this new guidebook.

About the author

Andrew Nugara was born in Rugby, England, and moved to Canada in 1979. He earned bachelor degrees in classical guitar performance and in education and presently teaches high school physics, mathematics and music. With his brother, Mark, Andrew started to hike and scramble up mountains in 2001. Shortly after, Andrew and Mark began to pursue other forms of mountain recreation such as alpine climbing, technical climbing and ice climbing. Scrambling, however, has always remained the primary focus for the brothers. In subsequent years, snowshoeing took on a more prominent role in Andrew and Mark's winter travels, yielding two books in that field. Since 2001 Andrew has completed over 700 mountain ascents. Along with the new edition of More Scrambles in the Canadian Rockies, Andrew is also the author of Snowshoeing in the Canadian Rockies (RMB, 2011) and A Beginner's Guide to Snowshoeing in the Canadian Rockies (RMB, 2012). He lives in Calgary, Alberta.
