Guided Snowshoe

Snowshoe Tours At Crystal Mountain Resort

Saturday Guided Snowshoe & Dinner Tours

Guided Snowshoe Tours are offered Saturdays from December 22, 2018, until March 23, 2019. Let the guides at Crystal Mountain take you off the beaten path to explore the secret side of this amazing mountain. This is a great activity for families and guests who don’t ski or snowboard but still enjoy the outdoors and getting a little exercise. The 2+ hour tour starts by taking a scenic ride up the Gold Hills chairlift where you’ll start your tour through the majestic alpine forest. Wind through the alpine, take in the beautiful views and fuel up with some snacks and water. Once back in the base area, participants will make their way to the Bullwheel Restaurant and Bar for a family-style dinner.
