Snowshoeing in Strathcona: A Wilderness School Adventure

Waist-deep snow, mountain ranges, and spectacular moonlit views; this is the adventure that Power To Be’s Year 3 Wilderness School Cohort embarked on this month. On a clear February day, 7 youth, 3 staff members and a Power To Be volunteer headed out into the snow for a two-day, one-night snowshoeing adventure at Strathcona Provincial Park. The journey’s destination? Lake Helen Mackenzie, an 8-kilometre trail loop and a popular camping spot during both summer and winter.
