Winter in Casper

A true year-round destination, a winter vacation in Casper might just surprise you. When the temperatures dip and the snow starts to fall, Wyoming transforms into a charming winter wonderland. But there’s more to do during winter in Casper than hibernate by a cozy fire and watch the snow fall— but don’t worry, you can do that, too.

Winter on Casper Mountain

Casper Mountain in the winter is a snow lover’s paradise. Just 15-minutes from downtown, you’ll find over 50 miles of multi-use trails— both groomed and back country— perfect for cross-country skiing, fat biking and snowshoeing. The Casper Mountain Trails Center even has 1.2 miles of trails that are well-lit after dark, which means the day isn’t over just because the sun goes down. If alpine adventures are more your style, Hogadon Basin Ski Area has 27 trails for a variety of abilities. Bonus: the new Hogadon Lodge offers a cozy place to warm with a stunning view of the city.

Lively Urban Getaway

The center of everything, Wyoming’s urban hub is home to endless things to do year-round. Peruse dozens of local shops, indulge in a handmade treat at Donnells Candies or take a lap around the David Street Station ice rink. Plus, our thriving culinary scene guarantees you wont leave town hungry.

Fish our world-class waters

You may have heard that the famous North Platte River is right in Casper’s backyard. But did you know that you can actually catch blue-ribbon trout 12-months of the year? Winter fishing means fewer anglers on the water, lower flows and large rainbow trout are biting. Or you can your hand at ice fishing on the nearby Alcova Lake or Pathfinder Reservoir.
