Epic turns await in the southwest corner of Colorado. With permits that cover the areas in the Alpine Loop near Lake City this is a great location for more experienced riders desiring to explore the steep chutes and summit skis.
Because of committing terrain and hazardous avalanche conditions options can be limited until late in the snow season. With prime conditions for ski and split mountaineering being in late March and April snow persists in the area until our permit finishes in June. Generally when the roads to Cinnamon and Engineer Pass open up to some amazing terrain.
With 14ers such as Handies, Sunshine, and Redcloud Peaks this can be a great venue for skiing your first 14er or finding steep terrain in American or Boulder Basin.
