Winter Backpacking Adventure

Enjoying the winter scenery

Contact Stacy for Availability
If you have never tried winter backpacking before, this is a great opportunity to learn for yourself how much fun getting outside can be in the winter months.

Our winter backpacking offerings have cooperative and uncooperative weather. We guide winter backpacking courses in northern New Mexico – there may be snow, in which case you will hike with snowshoes in winter temperatures. There may not be snow, in which case you will hike in boots and winter temperatures. We are unable make promises, or predictions of weather conditions.
We tailor each winter backpacking adventure to meet your fitness level and experience.

If you have never tried snowshoeing before, this is a great opportunity to learn for yourself how much fun getting outside can be in the winter months.

Don’t know what to expect? Well, the temperatures are cooler, the sky a brighter Colorado blue and the sounds muffled with the insulation of feet of snow. Oversized shoes are attached to your feet, poles held comfortably in your hands and off we go to make tracks.
