Snowshoeing in the Mountains

 

Snowshoeing is a great way to tour some beautiful summit county scenery while getting some exercise outside. Rental, second-hand, or brand new gear is available at many ski shops around the county.

 

Tour a Winter Wonderland

Snowshoeing is great exercise and fun for the whole family.

Local adventure companies offer guides that will help you safely explore the backcountry, or make it a multi-day adventure at one of the Summit Huts.

 

Snowshoeing is a great way to wear out your energetic pup as well… most trails are dog friendly (just make sure you clean up your waste).

 

 

Safety first in the backcountry

Man with Avalanche Beacon

Rent avalanche beacons if you plan on venturing into the backcountry.

If you plan on venturing into the backcountry consider renting or buying a beacon so that rescue personnel can locate you in the event of an accident. Epic Mountain Gear offers backcountry packages  that include a beacon, shovel, and probe. Don’t venture into unfamiliar or extreme territory alone and always pay attention to the weather and avalanche warnings for the local terrain.
