Description

This area is the closest place to Colorado Springs to find low angle skiing with a dependable base through the winter months. Skin as high up High Drive as you like or until you run out of snow. While the portion shown here is mostly reliable, continuing on the road becomes sun exposed and snow can be less reliable.

Once you've made it up as far as you're willing to go, simply turn around for a pleasant and mellow return trip.
