Mesa Verde NP received an abundance of dirty and heavy snow over the last week. The consistency of the snow made it difficult to operate the snowmobile and it was not receptive to grooming. As a result only the Pueblo Loop, or first campground loop, in Morefield is available for winter activities at this time. The Pueblo Loop is groomed for multi-use; classic ski, skate ski, and snowshoe. Snowshoes please stay to the right. Trail signs are present. Coverage is excellent, conditions are fair.
The winter trails crew will attempt to get more winter trails groomed and open for winter recreation as time and conditions permit.
