As the sport of backcountry skiing and riding grows, more and more muscle-powered skiers are interested in discovering tours with enough pitch for making turns but without the high consequences of steep avalanche terrain. In this state-wide guide you’ll find quintessential runs to check off your list as well as off-the-beaten path spots where you just may be the only one on the skin track.
In this digital book you will find a sophisticated navigational mobile app, complete with aerial photos, marked runs, a zone descent list, ascent and skin track info, run descriptions and tour lengths, hazards, slope angles, elevations, Avalanche Terrain Exposure Scale ratings and more. Additional app features include: offline GPS navigation, zoomable topo maps, map legends, slope angle shading, a searchable/filterable descent list and bookmarking. Designed to go along with you on your tours and accompany the Light Tours of Colorado Ski Atlas.
