Because of the area’s plentiful snow and wide variety of terrain, those who prefer less-developed places to ski have a bounty of options. Local outdoor clubs groom trails perfect for snowshoers and will link skiers to the freshest back-country available. Both adventurous and inexperienced snow bunnies will find something to their liking.
Please remember weather conditions can change rapidly so be prepared with extra clothing and goggles. Clothing need not be elaborate, or even designed for skiing, but a wool hat, warm gloves or mittens, and underclothing is a must. Also don't forget that sunscreen and sunglasses are necessary in the high altitude sun.
