Bluebird Backcountry will open Whiteley Peak in Colorado this month, the world’s first ski resort without any form of motorised transport and the first resort to open in Colorado in 15 years.
Located one hour’s drive north of Silverthorne, the resort will offer uphill access to around 1,200 acres of backcountry terrain. You’ll be able to enjoy wide open meadows as well as more challenging areas thick with Aspen trees. All off-piste levels are welcome and the resort will offer lessons for first-timers, in addition to safety clinics. To keep the experience remote and quiet, Bluebird Backcountry will only allow 300 skiers in the resort each day. Whiteley Peak will open on February 15 for a test season until March 15.
