FATMAP difficulty grade
Echo Mountain is the tiny resort less than an hour’s drive from Denver.
It’s loved as the long-time local hill, but doesn’t draw much attention from destination skiers––and that’s just the way it should be.
To help Denverites get their fix, Echo Mountain allows for uphill access during their operating hours.
They charge for uphill passes, though, and the fee is pretty steep for the terrain that’s available.
Because the resort is all on private land, they have full control over access.
Check their [Uphill Access](https://echomntn.com/uphill-access) webpage for current prices and policies.
Mapped here is the uphill Route B, which maximizes all 600 feet of the resort’s vertical drop.
You would start at the parking lot and ski down Full Send (blue) or Cougar Crossing (green) to get to the bottom of the hill.
Then you’ll transition and skin up the climbers’ right side of Goldigger, snaking all the way up to Hollywood and the top of the lift.
From there you can take your pick of any run down, and do it all again!
