RMNP Ranger Led Ski Tours

February 16 @ 1:00 pm - 5:00 pm MST

|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every week that begins at 1:00 pm on Friday, repeating until February 23, 2024

February RMNP is offering ranger-led ski tours on the west side of the park.

 

    Ranger-led ski tours will be offered on the west side of RMNP (near Grand Lake), on the following Fridays at 1 p.m.: February 9, February 16, and February 23. 

 

Participants will enjoy skiing across snow-covered meadows and in mixed conifer forest areas within the Kawuneeche Valley and will learn about this incredible environment. These programs will be 1-2 hours in duration and will take place on non-groomed, off-trail routes.

 

Rocky’s ranger-led ski tours are considered moderately strenuous. Participants should have a baseline fitness level that allows them to ski approximately one mile over hilly terrain at high elevations. These programs take place at 9,000 feet in elevation. This program is not suitable for young children. Participants must be 16 years or older.

 

Some cross-country ski experience is required. This program is not designed to be a ski lesson. All participants will need to bring their own gear to participate, including Nordic skis, poles, boot, appropriate clothing, etc. Equipment can be rented nearby at locations in Grand County. All participants should have some knowledge of Nordic ski techniques and know how to snap into and out of their ski bindings.

 

Reservations are required for all participants and space is limited to a maximum of 12 people per program. To make a reservation, call 970-586-1513. Reservations can be made beginning on the Wednesday before a scheduled program. All reservations are taken in the order they are received. Reservations for ranger-led ski tours are free (a park entrance fee or valid park entrance pass is required to enter RMNP).
