If you have never considered snowshoeing, Telluride is the place to give it a go. With jaw-dropping views in every direction, make your way to the Nordic Center to rent a pair of snowshoes and take your debut jaunt.
The river trail provides a flat, easy place to get a feel for the equipment. Along the way, take in gorgeous views of the forest, river and wildlife. If you want to see parts of the ski resort seldom accessed, head up the Sunshine Express lift to the Topaten Nordic/Snowshoe area. There are 10 kilometers of groomed trails that follow softly rolling hills and flats through forests of pine and fir. Lose yourself in the Zen of the moment as you softly cruise across the snow.
Rather explore in a group? Snowshoe tours are available through the Telluride Nordic Center or the Telluride Adventure Center.
