Coal Bank Pass Ski Resort Professional Review and Guide

"The main run at Coal Bank Pass isn’t steep enough for fresh powder, but it’s good for spring skiing on firm snow. Its low angle and wide-open slopes make it a great place for entry-level backcountry skiers looking to get their feet wet.

Over the years, the stretch of U.S. Highway 550—the Million Dollar Highway—between Silverton and Durango has been littered with small ski areas. No one was more instrumental in the development of those areas than Barney Yeager, who year to year moved a portable 400-foot rope tow from one locale to another: Columbine Lake in 1948/1949, Highway Camp (near Purgatory) from 1950 to 1953, Wildcat Ranch in 1955/1956."
