Course Details

Location: Leadville, CO

This course will be based out of Colorado Mountain College - Leadville Campus. The field travel for this program takes place on skis/splitboard; students must be able to safely travel downhill on skis/board through variable backcountry conditions. Students must also be able to travel uphill at a moderate pace using skins. The classroom is proximal to field locations and backcountry terrain however some days you will be required to drive/carpool to the trailhead. This is a time-intensive course and long days are expected.

Lodging and Food:
Lodging and food are not included in the course cost. There are several lodging, grocery options in the town of Leadville. Due to weather and road conditions students should plan to stay in Leadville. Frisco is located approximately 30 miles away and can be difficult to access during snow storms. We recommend students work together to secure and share lodging in Leadville.
