Discover Leadville’s winter wonderful with a snowshoe hike. When snow is deep in the forest and pine trees are draped in white, the world becomes quiet and still. After a heavy snowfall, an open meadow becomes as endless as an ocean. Designated trails become buried, and suddenly, you can walk wherever you want. With snowshoes, there are no rules.
Snowshoeing in Leadville is endless. If you have a pair of snowshoes and a set of poles, you can explore the Historic Mining District, walk across Native Lake, or head toward the Colorado Trail from the National Fish Hatchery. For a more luxurious hike, head to the Tennessee Pass Nordic Center, where hot cocoa, beer, and a warm fire await. Or, stay close to town while still enjoying all of Leadville’s splendor at Colorado Mountain College, where groomed trails are ideal for beginners.
