All guests are reminded that they must observe all posted signs and closures, especially during the early-season. Closed trails may contain hazards due to early snow coverage. Accessing closed terrain is a violation of the Colorado Ski Safety Act and will result in the loss of skiing privileges and could involve prosecution and a fine.
Uphill Travel Policy
Non-lift access to ski area facilities such as uphill snowshoeing, hiking or “skinning”, may present high danger of personal injury to participants or others and therefore may be limited or forbidden based on conditions, on-mountain activity and/or mountain policy. Please note, fat tire biking and/or mountain biking is prohibited on the mountain during the winter season, both during day time and night time operations. Prior to embarking on these uphill activities, please call the Trails Hotline for approved uphill travel routes and mountain access: (970) 754-5907.
Purchase Lift Tickets In Advance to Save the Most
Skiers and snowboarders looking for the best prices on lift tickets can use their smartphone or computer to purchase tickets online in advance.

Once a guest has a hard card ticket, they can even load more days onto the card by purchasing additional days online. Guests can also save by booking ski school lessons online in advance at www.snow.com/skischool.
