Winter months in the Elko area are usually blanketed with snow. Whether your idea of adventure revolves around the hush of falling snowflakes in a pristine alpine meadow or racing through powder with adrenaline-pumping speed, Northeastern Nevada can fulfill your longings.
Maybe your day calls for a little scenic exploration on cross-country skis or snowshoes. Bring your camera because the scenery around Lamoille Canyon and the Ruby Mountains is Nat Geo-worthy. Or, if you want to get your heart racing, take a helicopter for a day of heli-skiing and wind your way majestically down the Rubies’ multiple 11,000-foot summits. Snowmobiling and snow sledding are another two great ways to explore Elko’s winter wonderland. Fishing is even quite doable in the winter here, with trout in abundance. Choose your speed and Elko is happy to provide the snow!
