Durango snowshoeingGet your snowshoes out and get your snowshoe on this Saturday, March 1, at Durango Mountain Resort. (I was going for a “get your swerve on” joke, but I don’t think it worked.)

You don’t have to go this Saturday; Alpenglow Snowshoe Tours leads groups of snowshoers on after-hours, backcountry trips every Saturday and other designated evenings. During the tour, you will ride the chairlift to the top of the mountain and then take your time snowshoeing down skier-free ski slopes as you enjoy the sunset. Trips are 3:30-5 p.m. and cost $60 per person The price includes your snowshoes, chairlift ride and guide as well as après-snowshoe drinks and appetizers at the Powderhouse restaurant. Call 970-385-2147 to reserve your spot.

Durango Mountain Resort also offers daily snowshoe tours at 9:30 a.m. and 1 p.m. Guides provide step-by-snowy-step instruction and as they lead groups on 2- to 3-mile trips into the surrounding hills of the San Juan Mountains. Snowshoers will get to see and learn about wildlife, geology and local flora and fauna during the trip. Call 970-385-2147 to make reservations.
