Snowshoer in the national forest


General forest areas throughout the Santa Fe National Forest, including wilderness areas, are open to Nordic skiing and snowshoeing.  Generally, the higher the elevation, the better the snow.  Backcountry travelers should always be alert for the possibility of avalanche activity, and should understand the inherent dangers of remote winter travel.

There are no areas specifically managed or recommended for sledding, tubing, or snowmobiling on the Santa Fe National Forest.  

Snowmobile use is never allowed in Wilderness areas.
