UW is located between two mountain ranges—the Medicine Bow Mountains to the east and the Snowy Range, pictured here, to the west. These mountains offer opportunities for hiking, camping, cycling, rock climbing, and a range of snow sports such as downhill skiing, snowboarding, and snowshoeing. (UW photo)
