Winter Trail Conditions Update

Welcome to the Mesa Verde National Park winter trails update. Trails are groomed for skate skiing, classic skiing, and snowshoeing as snow and ranger schedules permit. Please see the trail updates below for current grooming conditions. If you need additional information, call the Mesa Verde Chief Ranger's Office at 970-529-4622.

2/9 - The forecasted warming and drying trend is here with daytime temps reaching 50. Snow is melting quickly and may be sloppy or become patchy. We anticipate the Cliff Palace and Wetherill Roads will melt out sooner than the Morefield area trails. The groomer snowmobile is currently down for repairs so all park trails are ungroomed at this time. We're hoping to be back up and running before the next storm, whenever that might be.
