BIRTH OF BACKCOUNTRY
The birth of backcountry began with a few old-time explorers wandering out into the snowy unknown on quests to deliver news and religion to remote mountain communities.
Today in the High Country, the “quest” for great snow is a popular topic of conversation, as everyone is looking for hidden gems just minutes from home. God must have been on his side when he braved the elements while traveling on the Mill Run, the backcountry route from Montezuma to Breckenridge.
Alas, fellow explorers, you, too, can explore the lines and chutes in the woodlands surrounding Montezuma, a small town nestled at 10,200 feet in the heart of the mountains. All around the small town are glorious slices of backcountry that make up some of the best snowmobile and off-piste ski destinations in Colorado.
