Ski & Snowshoe Tours

The Snowmass Cross Country Center can tailor a tour to your ability, interests and time frame. Whether it’s the beautiful rolling hills and aspen groves of the Owl Creek Trail, a mellow tour on the Snowmass Golf Course with Mount Daly in the background or the beautiful backdrop of the elk Mountains and a wonderful lunch at the Pine Creek Cookhouse, we can suggest or guide you on a trip that’s right for you. All tours include rentals, guide/instructor and snack. Transportation costs (if necessary), trail fee (Ashcroft only), lift ticket (for Snowmass Ski Area snowshoe tour) are not included. Lunch at Pine Creek Cookhouse (Ashcroft) or Sage Restaurant (Snowmass Village) can be arranged, but is not included in price. All tours should meet at Snowmass Cross Country Center for correct sizing of equipment.
