Our Park City snowshoeing tours are great for beginners or experts.  No experience is necessary, yet the tours are designed to be fun for everyone, even the most seasoned of snowshoers.  Snowshoes and poles are provided, all you have to do is show up in warm, winter clothing and good boots that will support your ankles, and definitely don’t forget your camera – you have to see these views to believe they are real!  The tours can last anywhere from two to four hours and can be open to others or private, though, if you choose the open tours, you never know what new friends you might make along the way.

The scenery here in the foothills of the Uinta Mountains is amazing and you will find yourself deep in a picturesque winter mountain scene.  The guides know the area well and are happy to share their experiences and knowledge, so you may hear some great stories and learn something new!  Snowshoeing in Park City, Utah is a one-of-a-kind experience in an idyllic setting, far away from traffic and crowds, and one that should not be passed up.  Destination Sports will make all the necessary arrangements, leaving you with nothing more to do than show up and have a great time!
