The snow has finally fallen! Winter is here, but that doesn’t mean it’s time to stop exploring your favorite Colorado wilderness areas. Winter means you throw on some extra gear, bundle up, and go outside and play. Here at Elevation Outdoors, we encourage all of our readers to get out and enjoy the snow, and one of our favorite ways to do that is on snowshoes! When it comes down to it, snowshoeing is basically just hiking—with bigger shoes.

    To inspire your next winter adventure, we put together a list of our top twelve favorite places to snowshoe in the beautiful state of Colorado.
