Who is this for?
No backcountry experience necessary! We welcome beginners as well as more experienced backcountry skiers and splitboarders.
What’s this all about?
The long term Bluebird Backcountry vision is an avalanche-controlled and ski-patrolled ski area that’s 100% human powered. In 2019, Bluebird Backcountry is prototyping in multiple locations, including Mosquito Pass and Winter Park Resort, in order to learn what backcountry skiers want and need at a more permanent location. Winter Park Resort is working hand-in-hand with Bluebird Backcountry to help develop our idea and offer a unique in-bounds backcountry event for the Front Range.
Imagine all the comforts of a ski resort: quality terrain, great snow, gear rentals, lessons, guides, ski patrol, food/beverage, and a lodge… but no chairlifts or lift lines. We hope our vision will enhance backcountry education and introduce more people to the spirit and soul of the backcountry.
