Snowshoe Tours

Sometimes Vermont's beauty is best seen on foot

And Snowshoeing is the best way to do it.

Located at the Clubhouse on East Mountain Road, Bear Trax Adventures* offers a variety of snowshoe tours to explore the Killington region on foot. Snowshoe tours use the rolling terrain of the Killington Golf Course and off the beaten pathways on-mountain.

Snowshoeing available when conditions permit; until then, the Killington Golf Course offers nice terrain for scenic walks along the cart path.

  • Tours are regularly available Thursday through Sunday.
    • Start times vary by tour; see details for each tour below.
  • All group tour reservations must be pre-booked through Killington Central Reservations at 800-621-MTNS.
  • Private tours are also available and should be booked directly through Bear Trax Adventures.
    • If you are interested in a tour at a particular date or time, please contact Bear Trax for additional options.
  • Snowshoes and poles are provided for all tours at no additional cost.
