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.

Winter never really arrived this year and the ski and snow trails were never useable. At this time the ski/snowshoe signage has been removed from the winter trails and rangers are prepping for the summer season. The campground gate will likely be opened soon to provide access to the Knife Edge, Prater Ridge, and Point Lookout Trails. Thanks for your interest and we'll try again next year.
