O’Brien Creek Backcountry Ski

Saturday, February 23  |  8 am to 6 pm

Go where few have gone before. O’Brien Creek backcountry ski trail climbs from Kings Hill Pass along Showdown ski runs before turning downhill to end up in the town of Neihart.   During the 8.5 miles there will be plenty of kicking and gliding, crossing the creek on some snow bridges, and 3 or 4 downhill runs to challenge your ability to stay upright.  Look for signs of moose, hare, mouse and maybe a hawk.  This trip is not for beginners.  Get comfortable doing Silver Crest trails then come join the adventure!  Cost: $41; SAI $14
