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.

The Campground loops have been roller packed and groomed with 18" packed base and 27" unpacked snow. The meadow loops have similar snow and are roller packed. The snowshoe trail has been packed and should be easy to follow. The forecast for the next two days calls for significant moisture, with a mix of snow and rain expected, hopefully the Morefield area will be cold enough to receive mostly snow.

WinterFest is on again for this year. It will take place on February 15th from 5:30 to 9:00 PM. Parking will be at the Morefield Store, snowshoes will be available to borrow, and the ski and snowshoe trails will be open. Cocoa, cider, s'mores and night sky viewing will be available by the bonfire. Please dress warmly and bring a headlamp.
