Hosted Snowshoe Hikes

Explore Schweitzer at a Different Pace

Hosted snowshoe hikes are a great way to experience Schweitzer with three different styles of hikes to choose from. The best thing is that all of them include spectacular views as you trek along with our Activities staff.

  • The Hermit’s Hollow Hike takes you through majestic old growth forests with great views from points along the trail system.
  • The Summit Hike includes a lift ride to the summit with views of three mountain ranges and two countries. The summit hike includes the option of concluding on the summit so you can remain to enjoy lunch on your own at Sky House. (Conditions may prevent a Summit Hike, in which case a Hermit's Hollow Hike will be offered)
  • The Moonlight Hike takes you on a walk through the forest with a fabulous sunset, then the moon to light your way back. At the end you can warm up at Chimney Rock with a cup of soup and a hot drink.

Snowshoe On Your Own

Our snowshoe trails are open during normal operation everyday of the season – weather permitting.

Trail fees are $20 for adults and $15 for juniors. Snowshoe rental packages are available for $25 or $20 for snowshoes only at the Ski & Ride Center.
