Does anyone know if you can just take the gondola up on your own to snowshoe up high ? I am told you cannot do this without hiring a guide. And where else are some good snowshoeing places close to the Village. We will not have a car so we will be depending on shuttles or taxis. I've done the lake close by; it's ok for a good workout on x-country skis but not much else. Thanks for any input !
