Paying to go backcountry skiing might sound a bit like painting a fence for Tom Sawyer but Bluebird Backcountry Ski Resort located about 30 minutes from Kremmling and Steamboat Springs, Colorado promises its 4,200 private acres of terrain will “tame the elements of backcountry.” In a season where social distancing is the name of the game, Bluebird’s guest capacity limitations will leave each skier with 6 acres of personal space to enjoy the day.
Bluebird Backcountry is an inbounds backcountry ski area designed for learning and adventure in Kremmling, Colorado. We’ve combined the best elements of ski areas, guide services, and the true backcountry. People love Bluebird for its great ski-patrolled terrain, backcountry rentals and lessons, lodge and warming hut — and most of all our super welcoming vibe.
Bluebird Backcountry has zero chairlifts. Instead, skiers and snowboarders make their way uphill under their own power following pre-set skin tracks. Instructors and guides are on hand for backcountry and avalanche education. And then there’s the fun part: ripping skins and skiing or riding back to the base.
