Ski and Ride

Swing through Eagle Wind territory for abundant powder stashes and tree skiing. For those looking to cruise and connect turns, head over to Sunnyside to catch some rays and cruise open runs such as Edelweiss and Bluebell.

Ski and Ride School

Spring is a perfect time to improve your skiing and snowboarding skills with lessons for all abilities. With soft snow, increasing sunshine and warmer temperatures, spring presents excellent conditions to learn a new snow sport or improve your abilities. Instructors will help make your spring break memorable by creating a lesson designed around you and your goals on the snow. With lessons for all ages and both group and private options on offer, Spring Break is a fantastic time to progress your skills.  

Snowcat Tours

Enjoy a private 90-minute scenic outing in a heated snowcat. Take in views of the Rockies while also learning about the local history, plants, and animals!

If you prefer to venture out when darkness falls, remember that the stars shine brightest in the high mountains, so what better place to gaze at the Milkyway? You’ll have the opportunity to watch the sunset over Byers Peak before making your way to the top of Vasquez ridge. There you can marvel at the stars while savoring s’mores and a beverage at the top of the mountain. Be sure to reserve your spot ahead of time for this great mountain adventure that the whole family will love.

The Village has an exciting selection of shops and eateries. Try breakfast at Goodies Creperie for a delicious start to the day before perusing the variety of shops at the base. Be sure to stop by James and Parry’s to add to your mountain fashion, grab a souvenir or find an authentically Coloradan gift take home. If you’re looking for gear and hardgoods, pop into West Portal Outfitters, Showcase Snowboards or the Burton Store to get the latest and greatest goods for all your snowy adventures.

You can also get all the goods delivered straight to your door when you stay at the base! Another great option in the Village is Vertical, with the perfect pond-side patio to soak up the spring sunshine.
