This aspect of mountaineering allows the mountain lover to use their skill to not only climb to the top of a mountain but to safely and expertly descend. The deep snow pack of the winter and spring keep many visitors away from the mountains. For the educated snow rider, winter opens a new door to the mountains where the thrill and satisfaction of getting to the top of the peaks is only equaled by the exhilaration of making turns back down.

The winter environment brings its own set of hazards. A primary concern for the backcountry skier is avalanche hazard. Learning the how, where, and when hazard develops as well as avalanche rescue, are key skills that must be developed by all backcountry travelers. Also important is choosing the right equipment, orienteering, and all the intricacies of both uphill and downhill travel that allow for full enjoyment of skiing off-piste.

The San Juans of Colorado are some of the most impressive peaks in the Rockies. Unlike most Colorado Mountains the San Juans are steep and jagged with significant vertical relief. The snow here is some of the best in the Rockies. In the winter great powder can be found from the high alpine bowls down into the trees making for excellent skiing in a variety of terrain. In the springtime the snow consolidates offering splendid touring conditions in the mornings and excellent corn as the days heat up, making for awesome descents from the high sunny peaks.
