Black Canyon National Park offers the perfect backdrop for the time honored tradition of snowshoeing.  This is an excellent activity for groups or you can easily make it a solo journey.  Snowshoeing allows you to traverse beaten paths or venture into the backcountry for a more unique experience.If you’d like to take a look around with a few furry friends, you might consider dogsledding.  Yet another traditional winter pastime that has great appeal for animal lovers.  The build of the wooden sleds has changed very little over the years which gives the rider a very authentic experience.  You’ll be amazed at how efficient and fast these gorgeous, smart dogs are and how exhilarating your trek will be.  

If horsepower if more your speed then grab your snowmobile keys.  Casually zoom along on a trail to enjoy the scenery either in the day or at night.  Once you’re more comfortable you can try a little offroading.  Snowmobiles are an easy way to get around which is why they’re so commonplace in Crested Butte homes.
