Howelsen Hill Ski Area Uphill Access Policy
Uphill Access During Operating Hours
Uphill access is permitted at Howelsen Hill. During operating hours, guests who would like uphill access have two options:
- Take Lower Hobo Park XC trail up Mile Run and immediately exit the ski area onto Blackmer Trail.
- The preferred alternative is to park at the Blackmer Trail trailhead in the Fairview Neighborhood (instead of the base of Howelsen Hill Ski Area) and avoid any potential conflicts on downhill ski runs.
Uphill access is not permitted on any other trails during operating hours.
Dogs are not allowed within the ski area boundary.
No additional pass is needed for uphill travel.
Uphill Access During Non-Operating Hours
During non-operating hours, uphill access is permitted everywhere in the ski area.
