Backcountry Ski/Snowboard

Backcountry Ski/Snowboard

Cottonwood Pass

The terrain in this zone caters to a wide range of abilities. Shorter pitches with gladed trees are great for first timers and intermediate shredders who just want a casual day of powder turns. Some classic Colorado ski mountaineering lines are available for advanced snow riders. The terrain is accessed with a snowmobile ride to the top of the pass. Clients will drive their own machine on a groomed road. Keep in mind that weather and avalanche conditions must be considered before planning the day with your guide.
