The Bragg Creek area is a terrific place to hustle up close to nature on a pair of cross-country skis or snowshoes. The best place to go for these activities is Kananaskis Country, accessed at the end of Township Road 232 (otherwise known as West Bragg Creek Road; from the hamlet go over the bridge, turn left and drive to the end, about 9 km). Cross-country skiing and snowshoe trails in this area can be found on this excellent map.
Elbow Valley also has many trails available for snowshoeing. For information on these paths, please see the hiking page.
