A Little Further Out
Located on Vail Mountain, Moonlight Snow Shoe Tours is a little bit of a journey to get to, but they offer night time snow shoe tours. Your tour guide will discuss nocturnal animals and their habits as well as astronomy and point out the stars that make up many of the zodiac signs. Moonlight Snow Shoe Tours will give you a very different view of the Colorado Mountains than you see during the day.
The Nature Discovery Center on Vail Mountain offers free 1-hour guided snow shoe tours daily at 3:00 p.m. during the ski season of December through April. The park is open from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. so go a little early and explore the exhibits. Equipment rental is not available, so you will need to bring your own.
