“A crew of backcountry skiers set out to explore Colorado’s lost ski areas in hopes to find adventure amongst the ruins.
Instead, they discover the truth behind what made these areas close their doors for good and illustrates what skiing used to be like before mega resorts and climate change wreaked havoc on independently owned ski areas.
Through heart-wrenching interviews with former owners, ski patrol, and historians, The Road West Traveled uncovers what it’s like to be a skier in Colorado’s backcountry and what it means to go from lost to found.
