Best Scenic Snowshoe Dash (2004)

Screamin' Snowman, Eldora Mountain Resort

Gone are the days when folks donned snowshoes for a leisurely stroll through the wilderness. Today's fanatics can't get enough of charging through the powder and breaking a big sweat. And that's where the Screamin' Snowman comes in. For the past several years, hard-core harriers have gathered on the slopes overlooking Nederland, then charged off on 5K or 10K races in what organizer Darrin Eisman humbly calls "the most spectacular course" in the state. Maybe the world.
