I've been living and breathing the trails in Boulder, Colorado for over a decade! I lead mountain bike tours in the summer, and snowshoe tours in the winter - a perfect blend for me! I am a PhD neuroscientist, a biotech consultant, a former professional bike racer and a lover of all things outdoors! Can't wait to show you the perfect snowshoe tour!

We had a blast with Steven today! We lucked out on a beautiful day and fit a 5+ mile hike loop around the frozen Brainard Lake. Hopefully, we get to come back in the Summer and do another tour with Steven again! We really enjoyed the chat with Steven and the hot choco was incredible. It was our first-time snowshoeing and I'm so glad we did this because it's a fantastic way to take in all the scenery! Really appreciated the communication between Lauren, Steven, and ourselves and the added touch of photos sent to us post-trip.

Lauren is an extraordinary host. We had such an awesome adventure snow shoeing with her. She accommodated everyone, and made my birthday celebration so special. I highly recommend booking a tour with her.

This experience is a MUST DO for any travel list! Lauren was a wonderful guide- warm and funny, safety conscious, and very patient with a beginner! The location was perfect- it was like hiking in a snow globe. The delicious cookies and cocoa were the perfect finishing touches for a great morning. Would absolutely book again and recommend to anyone looking for a new adventure.

If you are considering booking this trip or anything with Lauren, just do it! This experience was great! We headed out to Brainard Lake for our snow shoe hike. From the first moment, Lauren was friendly and welcoming. The snow shoes she brings for you are just what you need, comfortable and easy to use. When you head out, you will be able to go as slow or quick as you and your group wish. You’ll find some amazing views along the way that truly look like a winter wonderland. The view at the lake was absolutely amazing (as were the hot chocolate and cookies)! Overall, it was great and so nice to have a guide who knew the area very well. It takes a lot of stress away not having to worry about directions while out there and just being able to enjoy the hike!
