Your journey will begin in the lobby of El Monte Sagrado Resort in Taos. There you will meet your guide and travel along the scenic drive up US Hill to Amole Canyon a designated snowshoeing only area in Carson National Forest 20 minutes away from the resort. Your guide will give you a demonstration on how to strap on your snowshoes, fit your poles and set you up with a short safety talk before your adventure. Enjoy the old growth Ponderosa Pine forest in this pristine location for all levels.

Snowshoeing is a great experience for everyone! Whether you are a skier/snowboarder looking for a change of scene, a day away from the downhill impact on your knees, or you have never been on snowshoes and want to enjoy a day playing in the snow, we like to say if you can walk you can snowshoe. Our trail will be at 8.150 feet in elevation so come prepared with a water bottle and wear thermal layered clothing, backpack, snow boots or comfortable waterproof boots, warm gloves and warm hat and sunglasses or goggles. When snowshoeing you warm up quick and wearing a light backpack to delayer is ideal. Enjoy 2 miles of trail through this backcountry area offering great views of Picuris Peak.

We provide a pack lunch to enjoy and keep you energized! We also provide your gear. Snowshoes and poles are included in the tour.

Our Snowshoeing Tour options offer you the option to include a Yoga Class to warm you up before hitting the trails. Or you can finish your tour with a regional Wine Tasting by local Vivac Winery at the Anaconda Bar located in El Monte Sagrado Resort.
