Snowshoe trails in Breckenridge

Self-Guided Snowshoeing

Snowshoeing at the Nordic Center

Snowshoeing can be one of the best and most peaceful ways to visit the wilderness.

It is quiet, easy to learn, and modern snowshoe equipment is surprisingly light and much more efficient than it was just 10 years ago. In addition to our modern rental equipment, the Breckenridge Nordic Center boasts over 18 miles of snowshoe trails in Breckenridge on 1,400 acres of beautiful, snow covered terrain.

Guided Snowshoe Tours

How it Works

Whether you wish to take some of our more popular snowshoe trails in Breckenridge, or wish to find more solitude on some of our more remote trails, breathtaking views and the peace of the winter wonderland await you.

Our single-track snowshoe trails are separate from the wide, groomed ski trails. They are mapped, well marked, and easy to follow. Explore a loop trail or make one of our remote historic huts be your destination. Trails vary from easy beginner loops to longer loops that prove to be more challenging even for seasoned snowshoers and everything in between. Before heading out, ask our staff or one of our wonderful volunteers about what trails might be best for you. After your adventure, reminisce as you warm up by our large, wood-burning fireplace and sip hot chocolate or your favorite beverage from our tavern bar.
