We drove south on broadway street and wound up driving in the elk refuge without any fences around us. Unfortunately the elk are still up high until winter but it was exciting to be so close to the refuge.

Enough snow for this activity is 50/50 before December 25th. You could luck out with a good early winter there or not enough. The peaks will have snow to make it picture perfect but enough for a sleigh ride. Planning an early trip before Janurary and thinking there is going to be enough snow for anything or everything is always a gamble.
