From the warming hut near the parking lot, we will ski toward the CMC Ski Trail along the road until we reach the ski trail. We will ski this trail at a slow comfortable pace, taking in everyone's ability to make this a fun trip for all. We will stop for lunch along the trail, so bring your lunch, snacks, water and 10 essentials in your day pack. We will return to the car via the same trail. Please be prepared with exact change to pay your driver $7 for the round trip.

This trip is for students of 2020 Backcountry Ski School to practice their new skills. It is open to other CMC members if space allows. Please contact trip leader to inquire.


There will be a OPTIONAL celebratory indulgence of an adult(?) beverage at the New Terrain Brewing Company on 10th Street near Golden after the ski trip. We're hoping you can join us and celebrate our group's successful BSTS 2020 session!!
