Description

Colorado Mines Peak is the easiest alpine skiing to access at Berthoud Pass. Unfortunately, because of it's western aspect, it often has very little snow on it. When there is good snow, however, Colorado Mines Peak can provide a very enjoyable, long and mellow alpine descent. At the top you will find a lot of communication building for various institutions. Feel free to look around but don't tamper with anything - you don't want to ruin access to the pass for others!
