Backcountry Skiing

Berthoud Pass is a classic lost ski resort. It closed its lift operations in 2001 and is now a very popular place to backcountry ski. It is easily accessible and offers many choices for runs and style of terrain. If you are looking for a true backcountry experience with solitude and no crowds this is not the place. Many of the runs end at a road and require either a skin back up or a quick shuttle back up to the pass. The West side trail begins after you cross the road to the west side of Berthoud Pass. Climb to 11,900 feet up the old ski lift/run for .9 mile. This is the skin track to access several runs in the area.
