Golden

Backcountry Skiing

Getting into the backcountry to ski around Golden could be a lot of work, or it could be easy.

Ride a gondola, drive a car, or sit back for a quick ride in a helicopter to unbeatable terrain and a luxurious backcountry lodge.

Golden's 'Slackcountry'

Take the gondola at Kicking Horse Mountain Resort to access the back side of the Dogtooth Range.  Perhaps because access is so easy, locals refer to this area as "Slackcountry", but with features such as the tantalizingly named Super Bowl, there's nothing slack about the terrain.

Glacier National Park

Another painless way to access the backcountry is to drive to the summit of Rogers Pass, about an hour west of Golden on Highway #1. Glacier National Park, with its alpine bowls, glades and ice fields, is a backcountry skier's paradise.
