Cuchara Mountain Park Sled Skiing - Sunday March 26, 2023
Sunday from 10:00 AM - 3:00 PM MDT
Park in the main lot or at the Mercantile. YOU MUST CHECK IN AT THE DAY LODGE BEFORE RIDING THE SLED. Hours 10am - close (snow conditions dependent)
We are bringing back skiing to Cuchara Mountain Park, but not Lift 4 (quite yet). We're going about it a little differently - pulling a 22 person sled up the hill with a snowcat! This is a one-of-a-kind experience! You'll be transported up to the top of Lift 4 by our sled and you ski down and repeat. To ensure the best experience possible we are limiting tickets to only 50 lucky folks.
Hours: 10am - close (depending on snow conditions)
When purchasing a ticket you agree to the Colorado Ski Safety Act and Skier Responsibility Code (see below)
We do NOT have rentals at this time. The closest rental shops are The Edge Ski (Pueblo) and Kristy Sports (Alamosa).
