It’s a Beautiful Day in Colorado With Deep Blue Skies
You can ski or snowboard all day, regardless of whether you have been diligently skiing the entire season or just one time this year. Now is the perfect time to do it.
Telluride Ski Resort is only a 45 minute drive from Chipeta Solar Springs and is a great place for spring skiing. The majority of tourists are now home. This means that it is less crowded on the
slopes, shorter lift lines and the people you’ll meet out there are mostly locals.
The rugged wilderness of the Sneffels Range is well-known for its primo backcountry skiing. The Red Mountain Pass area is a treasure trove of powder stashes. You can skip the lift lines to enjoy a winter wonderland in the fir-trimmed forests. Backcountry skiing can be a challenging sport at high altitudes. Even in a snowy paradise, avalanches are possible. It is important to have a local guide who is experienced and knowledgeable in order to enjoy the Colorado winter wilderness.
Cross-Country skiing & snowshoeing
If you looking for a more scenic, but less extreme experience in the backcountry? Top of The Pines Cross-country skiing and snowshoeing give you access to the breathtaking views around Ridgway. You can glide along 4 miles of corduroy trails at Top of the Pines. You can also snowshoe or hike the 14-plus mile Ridgway State Park routes, where you may spot elk and mule deer.
Ridgway Adventure Sport rents fat bikes, and provides suggestions for where to ride. The County Road 10 at Owl Creek Pass can be used for cross-country skiing, snowmobiling and fat biking. These bikes can also be used to ride the Ridgway Riverwalk, a paved trail that runs along the Uncompahgre River.
Warmer weather is possible in spring as the snow melts.
You can participate in dual sports days. Enjoy your morning on the slopes, and then enjoy your afternoon exploring Ridgway and all it has to offer.
