Rocky Mountain National Park and the Estes Valley are national destinations for winter sports and outdoor education. While the mountains in winter can pose serious and very real dangers to the unwary, with the right equipment, guidance, and local knowledge, back-country travelers can enjoy and experience the beauty of Rocky Mountain National Park in winter.

KMAC guides are experts on the local terrain in Rocky Mountain National Park.  Hiring a guide  is one of the best ways to maximize your time and learn about the latest equipment, current snow conditions, and where to go.  Whether your goal is to learn how to enjoy our mountains in winter, or if you have a specific destination in mind, we are here to help. Please contact KMAC to hire a guide or to seek advice or information on local conditions.


Snow Shoeing/Back Country Skiing & Instruction

Winter outings can be overwhelming to a first-timer. The large amount of necessary equipment, determining weather and snow conditions, and where to go can seem daunting.  The consequences for mistakes in any of these categories can turn a winter outing into an adventure that may become very difficult and unpleasant.   With the help and expertise of a KMAC guide, these issues can be avoided. Our goal is your enjoyment and learning.  Your guide will share with you their local knowledge and expertise not only from the technical side, but also their knowledge of Rocky Mountain National Park.
