Get ready to snowshoe Colorado's beautiful outdoors on this adventure. I'll take you to my favorite snowy trail and wow you with the winter beauty of my backyard.
Transportation from most Downtown Denver, Golden & Boulder locations
Equipment: Snowshoes / or microspikes and poles, gaiters
A whole lot of fun
This snowshoe hike is a good beginner level and accessible for most people of reasonable fitness levels. We will reach a top elevation of 10,200 feet so oxygen will be thinner in this mountain environment. The hike is a little bit harder earned but it's worth every step and you'll feel a wonderful sense of accomplishment when we're done. We will travel a total of 5.5 miles and go up and down hills equaling 650 feet. We'll enjoy beautiful scenery, crisp mountain air and Colorado at it's finest.
What to bring:
Dress in warm layers. Avoid cotton please.
Bring a coat to go over your layers
Wear water proof hiking boots, I recommend Gore-Tex
Knit hats and winter ski mittens / gloves (liners too if you have them)
Try to avoid any cotton clothing, especially anything against your skin. Wicking synthetics are best
A small backpack to carry water and your extra layers should you remove any
Sunglasses & sunscreen
A fully charged camera
