Slow down and enjoy the natural beauty of the San Juan National Forest.
Explore Colorado’s beautiful San Juan Mountains on a snowshoe tour! Naturalist guides enhance the tour with their knowledge of wildlife, geology, flora and fauna. Morning and afternoon half-day tours available daily at 9am and 1pm for $45 — includes snowshoes.
The tour lasts about 2-2.5 hours, and is open to guests ages 8 and up. Beginners are welcome. We recommend bringing water, snacks, sunscreen waterproof boots, warm layers of clothing, beanie, gloves and a mask. Masks are required.
Private tours are available, depending on availability.
Tours meet at Guest Services. View map.
24-hour snowshoe rentals are available for $15 a day, depending on availability. Guests renting equipment must leave the property to snowshoe.
We recommend checking out Purgatory Flats across the road from the resort, Molas Lake and Andrew’s Lake — both about 15 minutes north of Purgatory on Highway 550.
