Description

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.

This digital book covers the following zones: Buffalo Pass, Hogan Park Traverse, Montgomery Pass, Hidden Valley, Caribou, Berthoud Pass East Side & 110s, Butler Gulch, Vail Pass & Uneva Ridge, Meadow Mountain (Minturn), Shark Park (Rifle), Williams Peak (Glenwood Springs), Sugar Bowls (Buttermilk), Van Horn Park (Aspen), Independence Pass, Bald Mountain (Breckenridge), Hoosier Pass/Northstar, Ball Mountain (Leadville), Monarch Pass/Snowstake, Snodgrass Front Side (Crested Butte), Spring Creek Pass/Baldy Cinco, Red Mountain Pass, Wolf Creek Pass, and several uphill routes at ski areas around Colorado.

With the Rakkup app, users purchase and save guidebooks for each zone onto their smart device. Once downloaded, the book is available offline. When you purchase this app from Beacon Guidebooks, you will receive an automatic email from Rakkup with simple instructions and links to install the app on your device and download the guidebook you have purchased.

"This is the kind of publication that helps you arrive cold as an out-of-towner, find the “skinners” and have at it while pounding fluffy Colorado pow and laughing at the over-priced ski lifts."

"It neatly lays out the elevations, descent lengths, aspects, trailhead directions, winter maintenance and parking info, snowmobile access, skin tracks, and exit info. That combined with helpful photos, give backcountry travelers a very good idea of what is going on."

"Sovick’s book contains established skin tracks, preferred routes, etiquette, and notes on terrain traps, gullies and avalanche paths. It also assumes all users are trained in avalanche avoidance and rescue, and includes AIARE’s “Communication Checklist,” which includes tips for facilitating teamwork and good decision-making."
