GUIDED HIKE W/ HIKEMASTER! The YMCA of the Rockies offers snowshoe hikes each Saturday. A Hikemaster in our hiking program will lead each of the hikes to a destination to be determined at the time of the hike based on snow availability and guests capabilities. A regular hike will be substituted if insufficient snow is available for snowshoes. Snowshoes and /or micro spikes are available for rental in the Sweet Memorial Program Bldg. the morning of the hike. We look forward to hiking with you. Be ready to leave the Sweet Memorial Bldg. at designated time please. Sign-up at Sweet prior to the morning of.

All hikes leave from the Sweet Memorial Building where sign-up sheets are available two days prior to the hike date. Each hike is limited to a maximum of 14 people (sometimes limited to 9) so sign up early. Ask a Hikemaster or read about requisites - plan ahead for bigger hikes! Bring listed hike necessities and prepare to have fun! If you have more than five in your party, we ask you to talk with a Hikemaster before signing up to determine the best hike to fit everyone in your group.
Join us for the informative Hiker’s Huddle at 7:00pm every Sunday in Hempel Auditorium (summer only). Learn about the week’s upcoming hikes, meet other hiking quests, find out the 10 essential hiking items, and see a slide show.
For those hiking on their own, Sweet Memorial offers maps and recommendations of trails in the surrounding area. Ask about dog-friendly trails.
You may request a hike in advance for your family & friends, or just yourself. Contact Andy Jozwiak: e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org or 970-586-3341 ext. 1129.
The fine print - “some restrictions apply”: We want all guests (children, parents, and other guests) to enjoy all we have to offer. It is recommended that children though 7th grades only sign-up for hikes under 4 miles. The Hikemaster will have discretion for hikes over 4 miles. A parent must accompany children through 9th grades on all program hikes. All hikes must have a minimum of two adults [in addition to the hikemaster(s)] when children are on the hike.
