Winter Hiking and Snowshoeing - Mt Charleston, NV


Just over an hour from the hustle and bustle of the Las Vegas Strip lies the Spring Mountains National Recreation Area, home to the magnificent Mt. Charleston. Mt. Charleston boasts endless hiking and snowshoeing opportunities during the wintertime. 

Most people don’t realize that the high mountainous desert gets that cold, but winter storms blanket the range in snow, and temperatures are often in the 20s in the shade, and in the 30s in the sun.

Snowshoeing and winter hiking are the perfect ways for entry-level winter wilderness travelers to access some of the most wild and scenic backcountry during the cold months. We offer private guided snowshoeing and winter hiking trips to the Spring Mountains National Recreation Area and Mt Charleston throughout the winter season for all fitness levels and ages. We choose our objectives based on your needs and desires.

Our programs typically meet at a rendezvous point in North Las Vegas, where we ensure that each participant is properly outfitted for the winter trek. From there, we provide transportation, driving approximately an hour to our trailhead. We gear up and then venture into the snowy wilderness to enjoy a beautiful day exploring the winter desertscape.
