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.

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. Fat tire biking and/or mountain biking is prohibited on the mountain during the winter season, both during day and night operations. Prior to embarking on uphill activities, call the Trails Hotline, 970-754-5907, for approved uphill travel routes and mountain access.
