Nordic Skiing

Nordic skiing, otherwise known as cross-country skiing is fundamental to Colorado’s ski history and life in the mountains. Cross-country skiing is perfect for those who enjoy the cardio workout and the slower pace to enjoy the surroundings. Nordic centers can be found near all major ski areas and beyond. Visit our cross-country ski page to learn more.

Backcountry Ski Locations

For those off-the-beaten-path types. Backcountry skiing is readily available. One thing all backcountry areas have in common is they are not managed. Meaning you are on your own. No groomed runs or ski patrol to help you out in case of emergency. Backcountry skiers need to be advanced in their knowledge of avalanche danger and survival, and carry safety equipment. Be able to read maps, and navigate terrain. Most of all have the ability to ski safely in the chosen area. It helps to have a checklist of items you need to bring along.
