“The stars provide a map for storytelling rich with mystery and clues of a hidden world”

At the Ranch

Before we head out to explore, we will enjoy a hearty meal around the fire. After your experience, we'll serve you warm mint tea harvested from our land to complete your experience.

Whether you’re a first-timer on snowshoes or experienced in the outdoors, when you come outdoors with one of our Indigenous guides, you’ll gain a new understanding of your relationship to the land which we hope stays with you long after leaving Painted Warriors.

What do I need to bring?

We will be spending approximately three hours outdoors so we ask that you wear warm, winter clothing such as a heavy jacket, snow pants, hiking or snow boots, a warm head covering such as a toque, as well as a scarf and gloves. Please bring your own water bottle, which you can fill on site.

We will outfit you with snowshoes and poles so you’re ready to hit the trails and we will have hand and foot warmers handy to keep you toasty and warm.

Covid-19 Update

We are taking precautions to keep our guests safe so they can enjoy our beautiful outdoors and activities with the confidence we’re putting their health and wellness first. At this time, we ask all visitors booking accommodations with us to bring their own sleeping bag and pillow. We recommend packing a good quality winter sleeping during the colder months (we generally recommended a bag for up to minus 20 to ensure you’re cozy all night long).

Please review our safety protocols prior to arriving.
