RMNP Ski Mountaineering

feb pow (2)

Ski Mountaineering in Rocky Mountain National Park is some of the most accessible and  dramatic in the lower 48. 

The season typically lasts from November to July with approaches of 20 minutes to 4 hours for a range of objectives from mellow to extreme. 

With backcountry skiing starting at altitudes of 9,500' and as high as the summit of Longs Peak at 14,255', the best skiing along the east side of the Continental Divide is easily accessed in just 20 minutes from the hamlet of Estes Park.
