With heavy hearts and much love, today we announce that Bluebird Backcountry is closing its gates permanently.

Foremost, thank you. We’re bursting with gratitude for all the shared experiences, connections, learning, and growth. From community backing to hundreds of incredible volunteers to thousands of early adopters — you made this journey possible, and we’re so grateful for your support.

Together, we’ve proven that a monumental dream can come alive, and we’ve made an irreversible mark on the ski industry. As backcountry skiing and snowboarding continue to grow in popularity, places like Bluebird Backcountry will become ever more important. And we hope we’ve cleared the lane for “backcountry lite” to enter another new and unimaginable chapter.

To capture the spirit of Bluebird Backcountry in one place, we’re asking our community to share a memory at bit.ly/bluebird-backcountry during the month of July. Feel free to contribute even if you never had a chance to visit. 

We will always remember the great times. And the mountains live on. Be safe, be joyous, and we will see you out there.

The Bluebird Backcountry Team
