You’ve had a long week and it’s only Tuesday. You need an adventure to look forward to, and you need to plan it now. Let that adventure be snowshoeing at Cooper Mountain. And at just a ninety minute drive from Denver, this qualifies as the perfect day trip. Best of all, you can count on it to be beautiful and scenic, and even better, a great workout, if you choose it to be. Cooper Mountain let’s you decide between two tours – one that provides a challenging workout or another, that serves those looking for a leisurely stroll.
For the More Physically Demanding/ Advanced Take the Morning Tour:
Recreational snowshoeing on mostly intermediate terrain
Participants must be 15 years old. Anyone under 18 years old must be accompanied by an adult
Trail is 3 miles long with a 500 foot vertical
For a More Family Friendly Vibe on Mostly Easy Terrain, Take The Afternoon Tour:
Recreational snowshoeing is on beginner terrain and is of shorter duration
Participants must be at least 8 years old
Anyone under 18 years must be accompanied by an adult
Looking for a tour that will be lingering and romantic? Then Copper Mountain’s free Moonlight Snowshoe Tour is for you! Just listen to this description and try not to swoon: You’ll “head out through national forest land to see the full moon rise over the meadow for an unforgettable experience.” The tour departs from Copper’s West Village at 5:45 p.m. and lasts approximately three hours. Not surprising, there is a high demand for this event, so make sure you make your reservations so you don’t miss out!
