Hike with a naturalist – under a full moon.
Yampatika’s naturalists give field-based lessons on local ecology and geology, cultural heritage and sustainable living – and in the winter they use the outdoor classroom to lead excursions with lessons on snow science, animal tracking and wildlife’s winter adaptation. Take a family snowshoe tour on the Legacy Ranch or a more strenuous hike to the Uranium Mine. Better yet, take a full moon trek on Friday, Dec. 28; Saturday, Jan 26; Monday, Feb. 25, or Wednesday, March 27.

The extensive system of groomed trails on Howelsen Hill is available for snowshoeing. Snowshoers are requested to remain on the perimeter of trails to preserve the surface quality for skiers. 970-879-4300 | www.steamboatsprings.net

Flat and gently rolling terrain around Lake Catamount provides 10k of easy to moderate snowshoe trails. The $18 day pass lets hikers enjoy expansive views of Pleasant Valley.
