This weekend

Heading out to RMNP most likely on Sunday of the upcoming weekend. Any idea how the snow cover is? Also, are hiking trails open on the East side of the park? Any snowmobile rentals in the Estes Park area?

We just had a good snowstorm move through. I live an hour south and we received 16" of snow. The trails are most likely snow-covered and/or muddy. You should call them for trail conditions or check the RMNP website: nps.gov/romo/…trail_conditions.htm

I just returned from RMNP and Estes Park today. Estes had 8-10 inches of new snow and RMNP had 14-20 inches depending on where you were. The Bear Lake Road corridor had the most new snow. I know of no snowmobile rentals in Estes Park. RMNP only allows snowmobiling on a short connecting trail to national forest trails near Grand Lake. Snowshoeing should be good with all the fresh snow in the Bear Lake area. Babalax is correct. Check the trail reports or stop at the visitor center and ask a park ranger about conditions when you get there.
