The Berthoud Pass ski area was one of the first major ski resorts in Colorado, dating back to 1937. After decades of up-and-down financial problems, the popular downhill ski resort closed in 2002. The ski lifts and all the buildings have been removed, and all that remains are the chairlift foundations.
What is left today are lots of open backcountry runs (sixty-five trails on 1,300 acres) for skiers, shoers, and
snowboarders who can hike up from the bottom of the pass (1,530 vertical feet) and enjoy steep and often deep powder trails all throughout the winter season.
