Berthoud Pass: Colorado’s First Ski Area

Just West of Idaho Springs, CO is Berthoud Pass. A high mountain road that leads to Winter Park and eventually Rocky Mountain National Park. Today the area is popular among hikers, campers and backcountry skiers. However, decades ago the area was the epicenter for the once fringe sport of skiing and home to a small ski resort and what many consider to be Colorado’s first ski area.
