Abandoned Colorado Ski Trail Gets Conquered by Amateur Skier
The mountains throughout Colorado had a great ski season this year, and there is even one abandoned ski area that got one visitor in 2017.
The Cuchara Valley Ski Area, which closed down back in 2000, has pretty much been long forgotten by many avid skiers throughout the state. But what’s amazing is that, even though it has been closed for 17 years, the ski lift is still standing and the trail actually looks really good!
I was checking out Youtube this morning and came across this video from Jamie Bittle as he took the slopes of Cuchara only three weeks ago.
If you didn’t know that it was an abandoned ski area, you wouldn’t be able to tell by this video.
