SNOWSHOEING COLORADO

Buckle on a pair of snowshoes and explore the natural beauty of the winter landscape around Glenwood Springs at a comfortable pace. There are so many secluded oases to be found! Imagine a day out snowshoeing Colorado in the beautiful Roaring Fork Valley: brisk winter temps, snow that glistens in the sunlight, catching a glimpse of a rabbit or ermine amid the muffled quiet of the woods, a winter picnic.

If this sounds like an ideal way to spend the day, give it a try and snowshoe Glenwood Springs. Not only is snowshoeing a great way to get outdoors, it’s a sport that’s accessible to people of all ages and abilities, burns calories like crazy and is inexpensive! Many of Glenwood Springs’ traditional hiking trails are excellent locations for snowshoeing, but Sunlight Mountain Resort’s Babbish Gulch is the top spot for winter walking. The Nordic trail system at Babbish Gulch consists of over 29 kilometers of marked trails, with a combination of groomed and un-groomed terrain that meanders through aspen groves and along the edges of dense pine forests. Snowshoes can be rented from the outfitters below for a reasonable price.
