Featured Descent

Vermont » Jay Peak Area

Big Jay

It is a steep face with lots of big trees up top.  Down towards the bottom, there are some drainages and a lot of thicket that you will have to battle through.  Just remember that just because there are tracks, they are not necessarily going the right way.

Due to the illegal cutting of trees, there is a large scar that looks like it would be perfect to ski, but is off-limits to skiers.

Details

Silverton Area has some of the most consistent snow in Colorado. They get it early, and they get it late. Storms love to hit the Silverton/Red Mountain Pass Area. The resort itself is almost a backcountry experience, as they recommend going guided. They also have helicopter access, and unguided days at the resort...........

How to Get There

Western Slope. It is a long drive from the denver area, but once you are in the area, there is relatively easy access to the larger peaks.
