Bluebird Backcountry is so much more than Colorado’s next ski area—it’s a vibe. We do things differently around here: avalanche-managed backcountry, skintracks instead of chairlifts, slopeside parking rather than crowded lots, great terrain without all the hype, a culture of education, and a grassroots scene chock full of campfires and live music.


Bluebird is located at Bear Mountain, on the Continental Divide between Steamboat Springs and Kremmling. We're excited to announce that we've secured a long-term agreement to continue operating on this incredible property. We'll spend this summer making Bluebird even better, with improvements to our skiing, access road, and educational programs.


Whether you're clicking into backcountry bindings for the first time or you're a total pro, our friendly staff can't wait to welcome you to Bear Mountain for our second season. Lock in your season pass today—we limit the number of guests on mountain every day and only sell 1,000 season passes.
