Amazing Snow Shoe Experience

I had never tried to Snow Shoe before this trip. It is the best workout I have ever done. You are still in the mountains, but burning 4X more calories than skiing. The manager of the facility and the staff are super helpful, knowledgeable and friendly. The park where you snow shoe is pristine. They don't allow snow boarders or... More

The complimentary snowshoe tour which was told to us by hotel concierge was a lot of fun. We got to slide down the hills on our bottoms if we wanted to. Age range for our group was 6-75. Ample resting and joke telling by the guide. The staff were all nice and friendly. The hot chocolate and cookies afterwards were... More

Wow what a very enjoyable walk in snow shoes around a green run and beaver creek village, I have never done snow shoeing before but I loved it so will be doing it again. Tom from Alaska was so informative about the local nature,wildlife and habitats of Beaver Creek and Colorado. And to finish off they gave us free hot... More

Allow yourself plenty of time so you can see all 3 vistas. Staff are fun, knowledgable and very helpful. If you have the Epic season pass the lift should be free. Leave nothing but snow angels behind.

Looking for an alternative to skiing on the family ski trip, I discovered this recreation gem in the periphery of the bustling Beaver Creek Village. Tom and Beth fitted us with show shoes and got us on the trail at the top of the Strawberry Park Lift. It was a great experience, so enjoyable that we skipped skiing another day... More

Helpful staff for advice & rental. Would be nice to have a trail grooming sign at the center to help decide which trails or which type of ski to rent: classic or skate. Quality of rentals were good. Very good lift operators going up and coming back down, thoughtful and ready to help.

This is a don't miss. At the top of the Strawberry park lift is McCoy Park. It is a magnificent park dedicated to snow shoeing, cross country skiing and so forth. If you want a tour there are free ones every afternoon or you can get a guide for hire - well worth it. Let someone show you around then... More

Taking a break from skiing/snowboarding? Or just not a skier? Visit the Beaver Creek Nordic Center and take the Strawberry lift to McCoy Park. The staff is amazing and the views are spectacular even on a cloudy day! It is easy to snowshoe and I suggest renting them at Sports Authority or Christy Sports. They are cheaper than than the...

I'm not a down hill skier, so when I heard Beaver Creek had the only "top of the hill" cross-country skiing, I knew I had to try. The skiing lesson was great and the scenery was breath-taking. I went snow-shoeing the following day and honestly loved that even more. The trails for snow-shoeing at the top of the mountain wind... More
