Hidden Valley, RMNP Skiing Conditions Update

hidden valley backcountry skiing conditions rocky mountain national park

Went skiing yesterday at Hidden Valley in Rocky Mountain National Park. Coverage was the best I’ve seen it there – no concern about hitting rocks or dry patches. Unfortunately, it was pretty wind scoured, icey, and rutted out. We skied the old lift line, which was pretty good – the further up you go the better the conditions. And we skied the main line over to skier’s left (skinner’s right). Above the road was hard crusty wind slab mixed unpredictably with soft wind-deposited pockets and a bit of sastrugi.
