Saturday: Winter Trails Day in Rocky Mountain National Park

Snow is no reason to stop hiking. Though your favorite footpath may be covered in deep powder, why pine for spring when you can slip on a pair of snowshoes and get out on the trail all winter long? Snowshoeing, after all, is simply hiking in winter.

Winter Trails Day is a free snowshoe festival with hundreds of demo snowshoes for adults and children; advice from snowshoe experts, demos snowshoes to try out and outdoor gear displays . Bring food and water. Note: Beginning at 2:00 PM, the available quantity of demo equipment will be restricted; so be sure to arrive early enough so that you can demo each and every model! Please bring your driver's license to registration. Event is free, but normal park entrance fees apply.
