The whole snowshoe thing was kind of my idea (the mom). From the booking experience to the adventure with Stuart it couldn't have been any better. We are not the most athletic family. That did not bother Stuart one iota. I was slow and held up the group and Stuart never made me feel bad at all. The adventure is... More

The weather was great. Stuart took time to instruct us on how to snowshoe and did not expect us to be professional snowshoers. He was a wonderful guide and I would advise anyone to snowshoe with him. Kim and Donald Davis Georgia

Thank you so much for the 5 star review. I'm so glad you had a great time, and your right, it's not geared toward professional snowshoers, just adventurous folks like yourselves. Happy New Year! More

This was a great wintertime activity - a good opportunity to enjoy the mountain scenery while taking a day out from skiing. I was traveling solo on this particular trip, but this would also be a great family activity.

We had an INCREDIBLE experience with Stuart. My husband sought out a means to go snowshoeing for our anniversary (something I've been pining to do for four years) and came across Taos Snowshoe Adventures. Being first-timers, we were stoked that the equipment was provided and that we'd have a guide ready to show us proper technique and all that jazz.... More

My daughter and I had a wonderful full-day snowshoe tour with Stewart on 12/23/14. Stewart was incredibly friendly and helpful, and he provided significant information throughout the tour regarding wilderness safety, the history of the region, and the flora and fauna of the area. The scenery was breathtaking, and Stewart ensured the pace of our tour was appropriate. He provided... More

I highly recommend this company. Five of us, all local to Taos, did a half day snowshoe adventure, in pristine powder in a beautiful forest, with no human tracks to be seen before our own - we had the forest to ourselves on the Saturday before Christmas while the local ski resorts were packed with tourists! Hot beverages, and later,... More

Taos Snowshoe Adventures "Explorer Tour" is the greatest. Our group were all novices and all got along fine with the provided equipment. Stuart, our guide, really made the trek a success. An expert outdoorsman with a vast knowledge of the forest, easy going, great sense of humor, and his chili and camp-stove quesadillas were a real hit. Now we're shopping... More
