The new snowshoe trail on the terraces above Kananaskis Village is a welcome addition to the original short loops. It makes a 4.4 km loop and allows for a 6 km snowshoe if combined with the original loops. When we were there before Christmas we walked it as there was very little snow, but its hopefully now snowshoeable, It loops around Terrace and Terrace Link trails, briefly criss-crossing Aspen.
While mostly through the forest, there are a couple of viewpoints and a few more open areas. The trail heads out from Woody’s Pub parking on the signed snowshoe trail leading to Terrace Trail north. Shortly after getting on Terrace Trail there is a signed trail on the left; part of the original snowshoe loop. If you wish to snowshoe the trail clockwise, follow it. After about 300 m the old trail turns left. Look for a sign in the trees to your left. (The trail may have better signs now as, apart from signs at junctions, the majority of the trail only had flagging)
Go straight on the new trail and soon arrive at a viewpoint. Cross and recross Aspen Ski trail through trees and an open downhill to Terrace Link, which is followed to Kovach. Jog left and shortly right (well signed) and make a short loop above the Ribbon Creek Valley emerging on Kovach just before Terrace Trail heads down to Ribbon Creek parking. Turn left and soon after turn left again back onto the snowshoe trail.
The trail winds through mature timber, briefly touching Terrace trail before ending back on Terrace Trail near its junction with Terrace Link. This is where you would start if you want to snowshoe the trail clockwise. Follow the wide Terrace trail back to the Village.
