Meet Bluebird Backcountry

What do you call a ski area with no lifts? It's not a riddle--it's Bluebird Backcountry, the first human-powered ski area in the country. Designed with education and safety in mind, Bluebird blends the convenience of a ski area (like lessons, gear rentals, on-site dining, and ski patrol) with the experience of earning your turns in the backcountry. Until now, newcomers to the backcountry have had few options to learn the ropes. Bluebird offers a place to focus on getting to know gear and movement, all on terrain that's carefully monitored by a team of experienced ski patrollers. Its full suite of educational opportunities ranges from lessons for never-evers to AIARE avalanche education. For folks who already have some laps under their belts, Bluebird is also a community hub. With regular events like the Nerf Biathlon, Beacon Seekin' Saturdays, ladies-only laps, and even a skimo race (all socially distant by design), Bear Mountain is the perfect place to connect with like-minded outdoor enthusiasts. After hours, the fun moves to Camp Bluebird, where there's always a good yarn being spun around the campfire. No backcountry experience necessary!
