Ranger Led Programs

Weekend Snowshoe Walks

Explore Glacier National Park on a two-hour ranger-led snowshoe walk and take an intimate look at the park in winter. Search for signs of wildlife, discover the plants and animals of the park, and enjoy the solitude of winter during this unique experience. Not recommended for children under age 6.

Participants should be prepared for a variety of winter conditions by wearing appropriate winter clothing, dressing in layers, and bringing water and snacks. You may use your own snowshoes or rent snowshoes for $2 at the Apgar Visitor Center beginning 1 hour prior to the program. Rental snowshoe availability is limited and only available for those participating in ranger-led snowshoe hikes. Snowshoe rentals are also available in neighboring communities.

Ranger-led snowshoe walks are scheduled Saturdays and Sundays at 1:30pm from December 23, 2023 to March 17, 2024.

Program is offered weather-permitting. Walks will be canceled if West Glacier temperatures are forecasted below 10° F.
