colorado bacuntry ski in Febreuary

Postby mazandrero » Sun Jan 15, 2012 9:37 am


We are a group of spanish backcountry skiers who will be heading to Colorado this february. We are starting to organise the trip and as we will go there for a month we are trying to get local info to decide where to go.

We will be moving around all the state so we don´t have a fixed route or plan, just we would like follow the nice downhills (not Nordic skiing), combining hut-to-hut trips and day tours, 14ers, etc. We have a high ski level. Could you recommend us some tours considering the actual snowfall?

Also we would like to know if there is any book where we can find this kind of info (or website, forums, etc).

Thanks in advance

Not the best conditions this year. The 10th Mountain Hut link below has lot of information on huts in the central part of the state. Reservations might be scarce this late in the season but you can probably find open spots in the middle of the week. I am sure if you call the reservation folks at 10th Mountain they'll be pretty helpful.

The conditions may be better in the San Juan Mountains in the southwest portion of the state, checkout the "Huts not booked by 10th Mountain" on the link below...

La nieve ha tardado en llegar por esta zona pero se esperan varias tormentas empezando ma~ana. Es posible que cuando vengan la cobertura este bien o muy bien. Yo resido en Fort Collins y voy frecuentemente a Rocky Mountain National Park y a Cameron Pass. Hay sitios para todos los niveles, aunque yo me dedico mas a los mas faciles. Un buen recurso para Cameron Pass es Busquen bajo CP conditions y veran reportes mas o menos al dia con fotos y descripciones.

Un abrazo y que lo disfruten!
