10 Amazing Winter Hikes in Utah

‘Tis the season to go hiking.

We know a little snow has never stopped you from hitting the trails and if you find yourself in Utah this winter, you are in luck! Everyone knows Utah has some of the greatest skiing and snowboarding terrain on Earth, but if you’re more of an uphill winter explorer or you just want a break from the resorts, a snowy hike is just what the doctor ordered. Depending on the conditions, you may need snowshoes for some of these hikes and even more importantly, be sure you’re being safe. Anytime you’re exploring the mountains during the winter, be aware of avalanche conditions and educate yourself on proper avalanche safety.
