Back Country Ski Williams Peak, Glenwood Springs, Colorado USA

Williams Peak, CO

Like Sunlight Mountain Resort for their glades, William's Peak offers a tame and fresh back country for all outdoor enthusiasts.  It takes about an hour to climb Mt. Bald which sits at 10,300 ft.  The hike up winds through some peaceful Aspen tree groves.  It’s here one feels the freedom and vastness of this area.

Reaching the top is rewarding, and the ride down is nothing but a great time.  We were lucky this day to have about eight inches of fresh powder to bomb through.  We were happy to be making some awesome turns through it.
