Overview

Follow the general Bierstadt Trail.

Description

This ski line is more of a 14er peakbagger run than a true downhill run, although you can expect to see a handful of skiers on almost any winter or spring day. Take the Bierstadt hiking trail uphill (angle is fairly low the entire way up this peak, so skinning on the hiking trail is totally doable), & from the summit, it's a bit of "choose your own adventure." Link snowfields surrounding the Bierstadt Trail all the way back down to Guanella pass.
