Details

Come join us for an “uphill ski” at the Sunlight Ski Area. Instead of skinning-up one of the downhill ski runs, we’ll instead go up via the nearby cross-country ski trails to just below the top of the mountain. Because of this, you will NOT need to purchase an uphilling pass from the ski area. From there, we’ll ski down the Ute Trail, one of Liftopia’s Top Ten Scenic Green Runs in the US. AT, Telemark, cross-country, backcountry skis all welcome. Climbing skins required. Recommend metal edges in case of hard snow pack going down. Must be able to ski in-control on groomed, blue-level ski runs.




Notes

FRONT RANGE MEMBERS: Please note the trailhead is a minimum three-hour drive from the Denver metro area.
