In it's prime, Cuchara Mountain Resort served 230 skiable acres using 5 chair lifts. Today, you may access those same 230 acres via Alpine Touring using Cuchara Mountain Park to access USFS land.

Soon, we will run 1 lift (Lift 4) to service 47 acres within Cuchara Mountain Park 3 days a week (Fri-Sun) and holidays. The lift-served area will be groomed and perfect for beginners and families to have fun and practice their skiing and riding skills. The rest of the mountain (USFS land) will continue to accessible via Cuchara Mountain park for AT/Backcountry exploring!
