ABOUT US

Tucked in the heart of the Rocky Mountains of Colorado, skirting the Continental Divide, our terrain is nestled in the Arapahoe National Forest designated as the Jones Pass Wilderness. Operating in our permitted area of 2,600 acres with elevations from 10,500’ to 12,800’ we have access to three unique bowls with both touring and snowcat access. Terrain ranges from the following:

 

  • High Alpine Bowls

  • Gladed Meadows

  • Rock Bands

  • Open Chutes

  • Gullies

 

The high altitude combined with good Northern exposure keeps our snow cold and light. We have the powder, vertical and adventure for an epic backcountry experience. ​

 

Jones Pass Guides operates seven days a week and is one of the closest snowcat and touring operations located 45 minutes from Denver. Not sure about your skis for the trip, no worries, we have a fleet of demo skies including DPS, RMU, Black Crows, and Liberty options. In additional to the skis, we provide safety equipment incorporating a backpack, beacon, probe, and shovel. Additionally, we have a photographer that will be out with us to capture the stoke with shots available for purchase at the end of the day. 

 

All trips will meet at our headquarters in Empire at 409 East Park Ave. We ask our guests to arrive there at 8:00 to ensure a timely departure to our terrain. If other arrangements need to be made please reach out to coordinate.  Our operation is in the zone by 9:30 and we are out of the zone and back to the trailhead by 3:30. While up in Jones, we strive to be safe, efficient, and timely to get you the most out of the experience as possible by maximizing our terrain. We average 9-12 runs per day and get plenty of vertical. 

 

Lunches will be provided by Rudi’s Deli and water refill is available on the snowcat. A solid day out wouldn’t be complete without a end of the day après with refreshments at the end of the day, compliments of Steamworks Brewery.
