Hoosier Pass Backcountry Skiing and Splitboarding
Located on the Continental Divide at 11,542 feet in the northern Mosquito mountains of central Colorado, Hoosier Pass connects the communities of Fairplay and Breckenridge via US Highway 9. The pass itself shoots the gap between Mt. Democrat (14,154 ft) and Hoosier Ridge, offering extraordinary access to numerous high peaks, including Mt. Lincoln (14,293 ft) and Quandary Peak (14,265 ft). Given the complexity of the terrain, Hoosier Pass is best skied in spring to early summer. Fun low angle lines can be accessed directly from the summit parking lot in winter. Longer tours will take expert skiers and riders to steep couloirs, bowls, high ridgelines, and chutes.
