Featured Descent

Mt Toll

From the Summit.  The primary ski is down the south face of Mt Toll.  there are a couple of different options from an open snow field to a fairly narrow couloir.  Both of which provide nice turns.  Once down from the main snow field and conditions permitting make you way back to Blue Lake and follow the same trail you took on the way in to get out.

One of the most beautiful National Parks in the Country.  RMNP is home to many great mountains, chutes and couloirs.  It can give many great opportunities for backcountry skiing, ski nountaineering and pretty much everything in between.

How to Get There

 

By Plane
Use Denver International Airport (DIA)

By Train

Use passenger station in Granby (GRA). No public transportation between train and park.

By Car

From Denver and the east, take U.S. 34 from Loveland, CO or U.S. 36 from Boulder through Estes Park, Colorado.

From Denver International Airport, Denver Tech Center, or downtown Denver it is approximately a two-hour drive to the park. From the airport take Pena Boulevard to Interstate 70 west. Continue on Interstate 70 west until intersecting with Interstate 25 north. (An alternate route from the airport to Interstate 25 is the toll road Interstate 470.) Go north on Interstate 25 to exit number 243 which is Colorado Highway 66. Turn west on Highway 66 and go about 16 miles to the town of Lyons. At the first traffic light U.S. Highway 36 willl come in from the left. Continue to the right - west - (now being on U.S. Highway 36) all the way to Estes Park, about 22 miles. U.S. Highway 36 intersects with U.S. Highway 34 in Estes Park. Either highway leads to the national park, west of the town.

From west or south, take Interstate 70 to U.S. 40 between Georgetown and Idaho Springs, then to U.S. 34 in Granby, Colorado through Grand Lake, Colorado.
