Winter Recreation Trails:
Moraine Park — Bear Lake Areas
Skiing and showshoeing are popular winter activities. However, be aware that mountain weather can be extreme. Clear, warm conditions can change to severe snowstorms with strong winds and complete whiteouts within minutes. If skiing or showshoeing, go prepared to spend the night. The few extra pounds in your pack may save your life. Check with Park Rangers or at the Visitor Centers for current conditions.
