Bluebird Backcountry is on the Continental Divide near Rabbit Ears Pass and is centrally located about 30 minutes from Kremmling and Steamboat Springs, Colorado. We’re just over two hours from the Denver Metro Area, and an alternate route over Berthoud Pass means visitors can largely avoid ski traffic on the I-70 corridor. We’re just minutes from the summit of Rabbit Ears Pass in the heart of Colorado ski country.
New for the 2020/21 season, Bluebird Backcountry will operate on Bear Mountain, just a few miles up the road from our previous location at Whiteley Peak. We’re excited to introduce backcountry skiers of all experience and ability levels to Bear Mountain’s backcountry terrain, from mellow meadows to steeps. The peak reaches nearly 10,000′ and will feature 1,200 acres of avalanche-evaluated inbounds terrain to explore. It also receives around 50% more snow on average than our previous location. Those who hire a guide or take an AIARE course at Bluebird Backcountry may also explore an additional 3,000 acres that includes even more incredible aspen glade skiing on Diamond Mountain. The property is entirely unimproved, and the skiing is more variable and adventurous than manicured or groomed. Join us for an adventure!
Bear Mountain is located on private property, and visits are prohibited until opening day. While everyone is excited about our new location, accessing the property before opening day is trespassing and will be referred to local authorities. Thank you, and we look forward to welcoming you on opening day!
