If you don't want to join the ranger hike, you can go out on your own. Head to the Taggart Lake Trailhead and pick a route.

Stop by the Craig Thomas Visitor Center first and ask for a map and trail suggestions.
You can take snowshoes pretty much anywhere to can take cross country skis. Take a look at these Cross Country Ski Trails.
