I’ll admit. In the winter we ski up roads. This is Wyoming, we gotta do what we gotta do.
If you’ve never skied or snowshoed up Sand Lake Road in the beautiful Snowy Range add it to your ‘to do’ list.
To get here park at the Little Laramie trailhead, then hang a left from the parking lot and follow the tracks–there’ll be tracks up there unless you hit this place right after a storm. The tracks will lead you right to Sand Lake road and from there you can follow the road for a nice out and back.
Our goal is always to make it to the campground and beyond. Sometimes we even go off the road for a little more exploring.
Sand Lake Road is one of those places where you might see a snowmobile track or two but you won’t see another soul, unless you see us. You can cross-country ski or snowshoe here. You can bet your Christmas money that if I had a fat bike I’d be taking it up this road too. Skiing up Sand Lake Road is another one of Laramie’s best kept secrets.
While you’re skiing you think about this awesome historic place just up the road.
