Snowshoeing in Vail

Snowshoeing in Vail is an easy way to see some of the most beautiful parts of Vail in the winter. Escape the hustle of bustle and step into the quiet of nature as you explore and discover the snowy trails. These are our favorite snowshoe experiences:

The Vail Nordic Center (the Golf Course in the summer) is a full-service Vail Nordic Center, where you can snowshoe on 10 kilometers of scenic trails. Rentals are available.


Betty Ford Alpine Gardens Snowshoe tours delight and educate with each changing season. The Gardens are open year-round, showcasing peaceful hibernation while snow covers the ground. Enjoy guided tours every Tuesday or un-guided snowshoe tours daily.


Walking Mountains Discovery Center’s free snowshoe hikes are the perfect way to discover nature’s resilience! Whether you are looking to explore the quiet, snowy Colorado backcountry or looking to escape the busy ski slopes, our free snowshoe hikes are perfect for curious visitors and locals alike. Our Family Snowshoe Exploration introduces your little ones to North America’s first sport, snowshoeing! Our naturalists will take you on a gentle walk and introduce the family to winter nature on the mountain. Evening snowshoe tours are a unique way to meet the amazing natural characters of Vail Mountain that become more perceptible after the skiers leave.
