Angie and Brandon planned a snowshoeing photo shoot following their winter ceremony at the lodge. Do you have activities planned as a couple or with your Wild Basin guests this winter?
The sun is shining, the birds are singing, and the weather is warm here in Colorado! As our staff gears up for another fabulous and jam-packed summer season at the lodge, we are also keeping in mind that many of our guests are in the planning stages for winter and early spring nuptials high in the Rocky Mountains. With that in mind, I’d like to relay a few tips for snowshoeing photos and trips in Rocky Mountain National Park and the Wild Basin area. Cools me off a little just to think about it!
- As always, Rocky Mountain National Park’s website has excellent tips for outdoor activities of all kinds, including snowshoeing. I love that you can even schedule a ranger-led snowshoe tour in select areas of the park for a safe, picturesque, and fun day of adventure in the Rockies! Check out this link for more activities and snowshoe tour information.
- If you’re interested in venturing out by yourself and have the experience to back it up, you can rent snowshoes in our neighboring Estes Park for next to nothing!
- Occasionally, wedding photographers have snowshoe equipment as part of their winter wedding photography packages. The Wild Basin Lodge does not have this equipment, so we highly recommend planning ahead with a snowshoe rental shop or asking your photographer during meet-and-greets if they have this equipment. Your photos can be just as adorable and nature-themed as Angie and Brandon’s!
- You can even snowshoe in the park by moonlight with a ranger-led full moon walk! That’s a romantic and unique way to experience the park, just make sure to leave the werewolves at home!
