The main attraction to both skiers and snowmobiles is a small cabin at the end of the trail. The Line Shack offers a good place for lunch and viewing scenery. The Line Shack is a public use cabin, please respect the property and others whom use it.
The extensive open meadows and ski runs from the old ski area (Meadow Mountain) offer good Nordic and telemark skiing.
Sledding is a popular activity at the base of the mountain. Please use extra caution when participating in this sport. Most accidents are parents of the children. Please be familiar with your limitations.
The parking area is surrounded by a wooden fence. The fence is to designate a nonmotorized play area (sledding). All snowmobiles are prohibited to enter into this restricted area.
Motorized users need to become familiar with these regulations at our administrative office. Obtain current avalanche information at 970-827-5687.
The Forest Service does not provide sleds. These can be purchased at Walmart, Safeway, or sporting good stores in Vail or Avon.
It is your responsibility to be aware of the potential risks and to take safety precautions at all times when you visit the National Forest. Changing terrain and weather conditions present a wide variety of hazards. Hazards include, but are not limited to: severe weather, snow and avalanches, obstacles of all kinds such as rocks, trees and stumps; over exertions, hypothermia, and becoming lost; remnants of mining and other activities involving excavations and debris; and exposure to unreasonable acts of other people.
