Hot Spot

Berthoud Pass Recreational Site | Feb. 10-14, 2022

Winter Park, CO

Berthoud Pass Recreational Site sits at the top of a mountain pass on the boarder of Grand and Clear Creek Counties in Colorado. Known as a popular backcountry skiing/snowboarding and winter recreation destination, use of the area has increased significantly due to the Covid-19 pandemic and popularity of backcountry skiing in recent years. As such, primary impacts include overcrowding, human and pet waste, wildlife impacts, as well as visitor safety. For the Hot Spot activation, the Subaru/Leave No Trace Team will be at Berthoud Pass leading a variety of workshops, outreach programs and community events, including opportunities for community involvement. Check back for more information as we work to finalize dates and program offerings.

*Berthoud Pass Recreational Site is located on the ancestral lands of the Núu-agha-tʉvʉ-pʉ̱ (Ute), Cheyenne, and possibly other tribes*
