The Best Snowshoeing in Colorado!

Rocky Mountain National Park Snowshoeing

Rocky Mountain National Park is the "other side" of the rocky mountains in winter - away from the traffic and big resort skiing crowds along the I70 corridor.

Snowshoes are a great way to get outside and enjoy winter.  Rentals are available in town at the Estes Park Mountain Shop on Hwy 34 at the entrance to Estes Park, or at The Warming House on Hwy 66 on the way to the Beaver Meadows entrance.

Many Estes Park lodges provide free snowshoes for their guests to use.  Visit our Packages page for Lodging & Snowshoeing Packages.

Our Winter Hiking page lists favorite trails to explore in winter on snowshoes.  Rocky Mountain National Park snowshoeing is an activity that anyone who likes to walk can enjoy, and is easy to learn.  After a snowshoe trek, come back into Estes Park for a hot chocolate and a soak in a hot tub.  You will feel invigorated AND relaxed!

For a special trip, sign up for an Inn-to-Inn Snowshoe Trek.  Three different lodges, two days of guided snowshoeing, and the best in fine dining & relaxation!

Backcountry and Cross-Country Skiing

Alpine Touring into the backcountry, and Winter Mountaineering in Rocky Mountain National Park are favorite activities for adventurers in the rugged beauty of the Park's mountain terrain.  Colorado Mountain School offers winter programs in Backcountry Skiing, Mountaineering, and Ice Climbing.

Cross-country skiing can be found on both sides of the Park on easy trails, but for groomed XC tracks, head to the Grand Lake side to SolVista @ Granby Ranch.

The nearest downhill resort skiing to Rocky Mountain National Park is at Eldora, Winter Park, or Loveland Ski Areas. Visiting these resorts makes a great day trip from Estes Park or Grand Lake.
