Ski tourers and split boarders of all abilities! Cripple Creek Backcountry will be hosting group skin events every Saturday morning departing from Lionshead Village in Vail.
On Saturday mornings we will depart Lionshead Village at 8am. This event is designed for beginner to the backcountry expert to fitness veterans. All experience levels are welcome.
If you need a demo setup please come by CCBC Vail Friday night between 4-6p or before 7:45 tomorrow morning. If you own an AT setup and joining us, please feel free to meet at the shop or go up on your own time.
IMPORTANT: We are fortunate to use Vail Mtn for uphill access. That said we MUST all follow the uphill policy:
1. ONLY skin up Simba Run (the uphill designated route).
2. If you are bringing your dog they MUST be leashed. This will be enforced by both Vail Patrol & the CCBC staff. Also will need to download from Eagles, there is no way to ski down during operating hours with a dog.
3. ONLY ski down marked open runs, No ducking ropes.
And of course, make sure the have fun! Go at your own pace & enjoy the views of the Gore Range inching into view as you climb!
Come by after to the shop for apres coffee or beer.
