Snowshoeing Colorado

Snowshoeing Colorado provides a list of backcountry accessable trials in the winter months. Winter is great time to explore the back-country. You can sense the calm and quiet , while snoweshoing through a winter wonderland. Many trails can be easier in winter, with snow filling in rough trails and terrain.

One of the most useful items to have for winter, in addition to snowshoes, is a pair of microspikes. Most popular winter trailheads have snow-packed trails that are more suitable for microspikes soon after a snowfall. Walking in microspikes takes much less effort than snowshoes, and allows you to travel faster when the snow is solid.

Avalanches are a constant risk in the Winter when snowshoeing Colorado. Be safe and always check conditions on the Colorado Avalance Information Center before heading out.
