In Utah, there is no shortage of trails or backcountry open to snowshoeing. The Utah Division of Parks and Recreation grooms nearly 2,500 miles of trails in the winter for snowmobiles, skiers and snowshoers. By itself, the Uinta-Wasatch-Cache National Forest lists 125 trails and loops for snowshoes and Nordic skiing, 70 in the Evanston-Mountain View District alone. 

Lee’s website, snowshoeutah.com, is a complete digital book of snowshoeing and lists 61 trails, each with detailed information including distance, directions and trail description. The site also includes info on how to choose shoes, what to wear and where to buy, along with advice on technique. And, it gives a list of commercial snowshoe operations, locations, prices and distances.
