Cross-Country Skiing & Snowshoeing
Blankets of snow cover pristine Wyoming landscapes, adding a softness to even the state’s most rugged terrain. The best way to experience the winter stillness of Wyoming is to strap on a pair of snowshoes or cross-country skis and hit the trails. A range of experiences, from guided tours and alpine parks to open trails, are available around the state to suit your expertise level. With a pair of snowshoes, you can float over the snow to experience the winter serenity of Yellowstone National Park, Bridger-Teton National Forest, Flaming Gorge National Recreation Area, Shoshone National Forest and many other public lands. Cross-country skiers can explore any of the 11 Nordic ski areas, including Jackson Hole Mountain Resort’s Nordic Center with more than 10 miles of groomed track. Don’t miss the locals’ favorite trails in Bighorn, Medicine Bow-Routt and Black Hills national forests – just a short drive from many of Wyoming’s communities.
