Between the shorter days, colder temps, long work days, and icy roads it can be difficult to spend time outside in the winter. But with all the sunshine and dry snow that Colorado gets, these winter days are world-class.  Let’s explore some winter trails in Buena Vista, Colorado.

If you are staying in Buena Vista this winter, here are some trails near A Riverhouse Lodge that you can explore this winter. There is terrain for all skill levels in the area. As always, please take into account avalanche conditions of where you are headed. Stay away from steep slopes and stay aware. For avalanche forecasts please visit Colorado Avalanche Information Center.

It’s hard to find a trail that doesn’t have a stunning mountain view. If you have any questions, our Innkeeper Brenda lives on site and is happy to answer any questions. Please stay safe and enjoy the beautiful and quiet Arkansas Valley in wintertime. If you are looking for deeper snow, a short drive north to the town of Leadville is often sure to provide.
