Analysing terrain data
If you're heading out to Columbine Hill from the top of Painter Boy and Gold Link, you'll find blue trail markers for Homeowner's taking you into an aspen forest.
The trail dips off into the pine trees to the right from the Columbine Hill cat track and turns through the woods as it eventually flattens out and makes it's way back to the Gold Link lift.
If you happen to live or to be renting a house on Anthracite Road in Mt.
Crested Butte, it's a great way to ski right back home.
You can often find some fresh powder through the trees many days after a storm if you really want to find some.
