Stories in the Snow

From the Canadian Shield to the Boreal Forest to the footprints of lynx and snowshoe hares.

The boreal forest has many stories to tell from the ancient rocks of the Canadian Shield to the youthful forest that rides on its back to the footprints of a snowshoe hare followed by those of a lynx.  All the dramas of day-to-day life in this wintry environment are written on the surface of the snow and below its frosty layers.  Strap on the snowshoes for this unique guided adventure as your guide, Rosie, helps you “read” the pages of an ever-changing novel in Yellowknife’s backyard.  Guests will have an opportunity to warm up with tea and Rosie’s famous cranberry cake in a heated Prospector’s tent located in the forest around Pontoon Lake.
