With the right amount of snow, Juab__is snowshoeing.

Snowshoeing in Juab County is an enchanting way to experience the region’s natural splendor from a unique perspective. Rugged terrain, unspoiled landscapes blanketed in snow, and skyscraping mountain backdrops set the stage for snowshoeing enthusiasts seeking a laid-back, less crowded outdoor adventure.

Making your way into the backcountry, you’ll encounter gifts like snow-covered trees, the occasional glimpse of wildlife, and a much-needed escape from the daily demands of the “real world.” As the crisp, clean air fills your lungs and enlivens the senses, let any worries melt away and become fully present and part of your captivating surroundings.

Before heading out, check local weather conditions and tell someone where you’ll be snowshoeing. Make sure to bring the essential gear, including but not limited to sturdy snowshoes, enough water, and warm clothing.

Please check on grooming and avalanche conditions at Utah Snowmobile Association and Utah Avalanche Center.
