Chop - Some pow, some chop, skin track was a little slick in a few spots. Saw a rock or two but it’s coming in nicely! History

Need to Know

You'll want to take a sharp left turn at the bottom to get back to the road where you've crossed from the other side, or you'll just have a bit bigger of hike to re-ascend.

Description

On a powder day, this is a really fun run to hit. It's not a big ski descent, but for a very short approach, you get some fantastic skiing. You can get many laps in here with some great open tree skiing.

History & Background

Berthoud has a very rich history, see Friends of Berthoud Pass: berthoudpass.org/resources/…
