Details

Hidden Valley is an old ski area in Rocky Mountain National Park.  It has been closed for many years, and is now a favorite with skiers, boarders and tubers. We will skin up thru the trees, cross Trail Ridge Road about half way up, and continue to the top, depending on the weather and conditions. The top is 11,400', which is about treeline.  Bring ten essentials, plenty of warm clothing.



Required gear: AT skis, telemark skis, or split boards, skins, shovel, avalanche beacon, probe.



This trip requires blue skiing skills.  Must be able to negotiate various snow conditions.
