Is this like Silverton Mountain?
Silverton helped pioneer sidecountry (backcountry-like terrain accessed via chairlift), and they’re a great place to go for “Colorado’s steepest heli & lift-served skiing.” We love skiing at Silverton, and we have a different vision for Bluebird Backcountry:
- A purely human-powered experience
- Plenty of mellow terrain in addition to steeps
- An experience designed around introductory and continuing backcountry education
We are aware of numerous locations in the U.S., Canada, and beyond that provide part (but not all) of the experience we’ve developed for Bluebird Backcountry.
