Info on backcountry skiing near Steamboat?

Post by TheRealRooster » Wed Dec 04, 2019 12:47 pm

Hey all, looking for good information resources (websites, guidebooks, your gnarly friend who lives in a van in Clark) for backcountry skiing around the Steamboat area. I'm aware of the major areas (Buffalo Pass, Rabbit Ears, Fish Creek Canyon), but I haven't been able to find a good amount of detailed information for these areas. I'm sure some recon and CalTopo work would get me in the neighborhood, but I'm all about as much info as I can get since I spend limited time up that way. Anyone know of good resources? Thanks!

Our book is statewide, but we do have a few routes in the Steamboat area, the Flat Tops, and Cameron. https://14erskiers.com/blog/backcountry ... -colorado/

Awesome, thanks for the heads up! Is it available retail? I'm in Golden, thinking Bentgate or someone may have it. If not, guess I just won't have it for this particular weekend.

Side note, big fan of the site, and I'm sort of surprised I didn't think of this book since I knew it existed. Not sure who exactly I'm talking to here, but I'm glad to hear that Brittany's recovery is coming along!

Haha, thanks, this is Frank. Bent Gate or someone should have it, yes. Let us know if they don't-
