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 as well as the trails on and off the 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 Friday through Sunday and peak dates.
    • 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.
  • Snowshoes and poles are provided for all tours at no additional cost.
  • Private tours are available most days and should be booked directly through Bear Trax Adventures.
    • If you are interested in a private tour or have questions, please contact Bear Trax for additional options.
