Description

Start the skin from the Brainard Winter lot. Take the immediate first left before the summer ranger gate on the Left Hand Reservoir road. 1.3 miles up the road, a large glade will appear on the left, this is where the Niwot Mountain trail begins (and this glade can provide some fun and easy low-angle turns!).

Follow the trail to the summit of Niwot Mountain and ski down any side that is holding snow (the snow on this peak may be highly dependent on recent snow and winds).
