 The Dillon Ranger District is home to an exciting variety of Winter Sports recreation opportunities!  With an average snowfall of 300 inches per year there is plenty of snow to go around for any activity that you want to enjoy.  The Dillon Ranger District is home to 25 awesome cross-country skiing and snowshoeing trails and 8 kickin' snowmobiling trails.  The Dillon Ranger District has everything from the unbelievable Vail Pass Winter Recreation Area, where you can ride your snowmobile in the morning and cross-country ski or snowshoe in the afternoon, to the quiet solitude of a snowshoe trek to the top of the Continental Divide!  For a list of Winter Recreation related links please click HERE.

For example, in Cross-country Skiing / Snowshoeing you will find Easy, Moderate and More Difficult trails.  Each of these categories has a separate page with links to the ROG sheets.  For Snowmobiling, you will find Easy, Moderate and More Difficult routes to explore all on the same page.  Click on the route you want and you will be taken to that ROG sheet.

If you see a particular Winter Recreation trail that interests you, click on the trail name and you will be taken the ROG sheet for that trail.  The trail links contain the same Recreation Opportunity Guide (ROG) sheets that you can get at the Dillon Ranger District office.  The front side of the ROG sheet contains trail information such as: trail difficulty, length, directions on how to get to the trailhead, interesting information on the trail and any important information that trail users might need to know.  The back side of the ROG sheet contains a custom topographic map highlighting the trail route along with an elevation profile.
