Colorado Winter adventures

Rocky Mountain Magic


Colorado is known as a winter vacation hub and a skiers’ paradise. While the ski areas in the state provide great amenities and access to terrific inbound terrain, much of the best terrain lies outside the boundaries of the ski areas (i.e. Aspen, Breckenridge, Steamboat, or Vail Colorado). In addition to stellar backcountry skiing terrain, the backcountry experience provides few crowds and access to un-skied virgin slopes. Come join us to see this uncrowded side of Colorado snow sports with a guided backcountry skiing tour.

Our goal at Colorado Wilderness Rides And Guides is to provide ski access to these hidden gems including Rocky Mountain National Park skiing and Colorado backcountry tours in the James and Indian Peaks Wildernesses. As with any winter Colorado backcountry activity, our number one priority is your safety. In addition to providing access to some of the best Colorado skiing terrain imaginable within a two-hour drive of a major metro area such as Boulder or Denver, Colorado, we will educate you about traveling in avalanche terrain and help make you a safer and more educated backcountry traveler. For those who want to acquire advanced knowledge and skills, we also teach AIARE Level 1 and 2 Avalanche Courses and wilderness first aid certifications and courses.

Our Colorado ski trips are custom designed and tailored for everyone from the novice backcountry traveler who wants to try alpine touring for the first time to the very experienced skier looking for some amazing Colorado ski experiences and a little extra education and insight into traveling in this amazing winter/spring environment.

Through Colorado Wilderness Rides and Guides backcountry ski trips, your group receives roundtrip transportation, expert local feedback, logistical support, and the best and most experienced professional guides in Colorado.


The winter and spring are unique times in the mountains. The snow creates a majestic setting in the mountains and valleys. The lack of people and the stark beauty of the mountains covered in snow adds to the wilderness feel and sense of solitude found during the winter months. Our focus will be on finding the best snowshoe tours to see the beautiful array of colors that make Colorado spectacular during the winter and spring. Snowshoe distances and difficulties will be chosen based on overall group abilities and fitness levels. In addition to seeing the flora (trees and plants), there will be opportunities to hopefully see wildlife such as elk, moose, fox, and possibly even bear. The goal of our guided Colorado snowshoe tours is to provide a safe and educational experience not found in a guidebook. We want to get you to the trails that only our guides know.

Colorado Wilderness Rides and Guides provides spectacular tours into Rocky Mountain National Park, with opportunities to explore the majestic mountain scenery and some of the best snowshoeing in Colorado. While snowshoeing Rocky Mountain National Park, we’ll provide all the gear, the guide, snacks, and water during the trip, and show you trails that only our snowshoeing guides know, giving you access to some of the greatest scenery in Colorado.

Want to try the exciting sport of snowshoeing? Come learn how to snowshoe around Denver, Boulder, and Estes Park, Colorado.
