Details

From the Vail Pass parking area, the group will follow a well-maintained skiing trail for one & a half miles. Then, we’ll climb toward Black Lakes Ridge. Once on top, the open glades below will make for a wonderful ¾ mile long tele run to just above the lakes. The snow is usually fantastic in this area and another one or two runs is definitely worth every inch of the additional climbing. Strong “telemark” skills and skins are required!

Notes

Avalanche Gear Required! A $6.00 fee is required to enter the Vail Pass area/person.

Sorry it is past the registration deadline for this event.
