The Start To Bluebird Backcountry's First Full Season Has Been Delayed

While mountains across the country continue to open up for the 2020/2021 season, the only inbounds backcountry ski hill around has had to delay its opening day.

Bluebird Backcountry in Colorado is still looking forward to getting their first full season underway, though the weather has been less than cooperative. Initially, the mountain was looking to be open on Christmas Eve, this coming Friday the 24th. However, the decision has been made to push the opening back one week to New Year's Eve, the 31st.

Though mother nature hasn't dumped on the Bear Mountain area the way she has in other places, they are preparing a zero-snow backup plan, which makes the delayed opening also a guaranteed opening. In the event they don't have the base to open for skiing and riding, they will have other programming ready for visitors. 

If you had passes, lessons, or rental reservations for the original opening timeline, the mountain will be reaching out to you to reschedule. If you are looking for more information, please head to the BlueBird Backcountry website at or follow them through their social media pages.
