What’s this all about?
Bluebird Backcountry’s long-term goal is to open an avalanche-controlled backcountry ski area. We hope such an area will enhance backcountry education and introduce more people to the spirit and soul of the backcountry. These launch days at Mosquito Pass were designed to give novices a taste of winter travel and backcountry knowledge. We offered a fun and educational experience while also learning a lot about what guests would want and need at a backcountry ski area.
Over four days we recorded 300+ observations, collected 95 surveys, and made 44 on-the-fly adjustments to our programming.
