Snow Valley - Torchlit Self-Guided Snowshoe Hike

Enjoy a self-guided Torchlit Snowshoe hike through the forests of Snow Valley. Over two hundred torches will light your way through a 2.6 km looped trail. Halfway through your adventure, you will be greeted by the glow of the campfire, the crackle of the fire, natures own music greets you. Cozy up with your friends next to the bonfire to enjoy some complementary tasty treats and drinks as the fire paints yellow and orange kaleidoscopes in the forest.

This adventure takes approximately 1 - 1.5 hours to complete, depending on your walking pace.

This includes your Trail Pass / Snowshoe Rentals and Head Lamp.
