Bluebird is Colorado’s newest ski area — and our vibe is everything you want it to be. From dogs and slopeside camping to live music and free bacon, we are proud to be the friendliest and most unique ski mountain in the universe.
“An absolutely incredible experience. Lovely staff that are both kind and knowledgeable.”
“From the moment I stepped out of my car to the moment I got back in, the entire experience was enjoyable and well thought out. The staff was super friendly and was happy to guide me through their ticketing/orientation process. The emphasis on safety was impressive… If you are curious about ski touring but don’t want to buy all the gear up front there is no cheaper and stress free way to test out this wonderful outdoor activity. Additionally, if you are a more experienced backcountry skier, then this place is still awesome…Overall, the emphasis on safety is unmatched, and the smiles-for-miles factor is off the charts. Just ski Bluebird Backcountry.”
“We had a fantastic experience taking our dog to Bluebird for his first Backcountry trip. All the staff was friendly and knowledgeable. The terrain was great and well maintained – plenty of untracked powder. I only wish we had more days to spend there!”
“The best ski experience ever. Already bough our passes for the upcoming ski season. Friendliest most relaxed ski experience while being the most energy expending ski experience. Cranked up to 11!”
“Awesome experience at Bluebird. It’s an idea that hopefully will take off in other areas of the country but as far as Bluebird goes, as long as they’re operating in CO I’ll make it a point to go wherever they are. The “leave no trace” concept was blown out of the water with how amazing everything looked when the season was done. Bluebird is ran by some stellar individuals to include their volunteers. Till next time!!”
“This place is amazing! Such a great idea, and great vibes. Highly recommend whether you are an advanced bc skier or brand new- super welcoming to those who are wanting to get into the sport. Also. Bacon and S’mores. What else do ya need?!”
