Details

We will ski the Sugarloaf Ridge Trails west of Copper Mountain. The resort sometimes lays a groomed track, but in recent seasons, this has not been reliable. Leader will try to scout in the week before to advise trail conditions.



Suggested gear is fish-scale backcountry skis with metal edges. Kicker skins may be needed. Rolling terrain.

Contact Leader to sign up (email preferred) jandudley01@gmail.com. Please include your CMC member number, a brief description of your experience on backcountry ski trails, and the type of gear you will use.
