Alpine Skiing

The downhill ski area at The Club has been professionally planned by Mike Larson of International Alpine Design, former chief mountain planner for Vail Resorts, and by Johnnie Stevens, our own General Manager and formerly the COO at Telluride Ski Resort.

The ski mountain at Cimarron is three miles wide and includes a broad variety of ski terrain, including more than 60 beginner, intermediate and advanced trails on over 1,000 acres. All skiing takes place from 15 different “drop zones” scattered along almost two miles of the Cimarron Ridge, at elevations ranging between 11,100 and 11,430 feet.  See the trail map

Advanced skiers can enjoy the North Mountain where steep ungroomed powder runs benefit from spindrift blowing over the Cimarron Ridge and remain untracked for days after a storm. Wooded glades, chutes, an alpine cirque, and an area known as the “Gladows,” which begins with 500 vertical feet of open bowl and transitions into steep glades with pocket meadows, are available for unlimited powder skiing.

There are also 11 north facing couloirs that descend approximately 1,500 feet from the Cimarron Ridge.  These couloirs can be reached by hiking along the ridge from the most southerly drop zone on CMC’s property.

The South Mountain has a variety of groomed runs that are suitable for every ability of skier.
