CMC’s mission is to enrich the lives of its Members by providing a unique mountain experience, with other recreational and social activities, that foster friendship and fellowship within a private, Member-owned setting. CMC owns and operates a private mountain club for the recreation, pleasure and benefit of its Members. Memberships in the Club are offered exclusively to permit Members the social and recreational use of the Club facilities. Memberships should not be viewed as an investment and no Member should expect to derive any economic profits from membership in the Club. The plans for development disclosed on The Club’s website and in other materials are tentative and conceptual only, and subject to change, in accordance with planning considerations, market conditions and demand. Future improvements must be considered planned, not promised. CMC is not obligated to develop any specific future facility at any specific locations and, subject to any governmental land use regulation of other planning considerations, may develop future facilities in alternate locations. This is not an offer in any jurisdiction in which the legal requirements for such an offer have not been met. No Federal agency has judged the merits or value, if any, of this property.

Ski Territories

On CMC’s private lands, the skiing is accessible from 15 drop-in points along CMC’s two-and-a-half miles of the Cimarron Ridge. From the highest point at 11,430’, the runs drop 1,610 vertical feet to the Upper Club meadows at 9,820’, and there’s approximately 1,000 acres of skiable terrain on these private lands. To the south are Bureau of Land Management and National Forest lands, encompassing another 950 acres of hike-to terrain.

castle cirque

400 Acres / 1,610' Vertical / 11,430' Peak

This is where you’ll find steep and deep powder runs, chutes and extensive glades of spruce, fir, pine and aspen, and a series of technical couloirs are just a bit further north.


200 Acres / 1,375' Vertical / 11,195' Peak

Here you’ll find beginner, intermediate and advanced runs, as well as a high-elevation bowl, groomed nightly. All of the trails end at The Lodge.

couloirs (blm)

350 Acres / 1,695' Vertical / 11,515' Peak

This territory extends just over a mile to the south of CMC’s private property and features massive spires that tower hundreds of feet overhead. Here, more advanced skiers ready to skin will find 13 main couloir drainages with approximately 34 starting zones; the first set of couloirs is just a four-minute skin from the southern edge of the Uncompahgre Territory.

monument basin (national forest)

600 Acres / 1,705' Vertical / 11,620’ Peak

Directly to the south of the Couloirs Territory, the Monument Basin ridge extends for over three miles, which makes for a great day of exploration. All of the terrain found here funnels down to the Club’s Warming Hut at High Park Lake


250 Acres / 450' Vertical / 10,730' Peak
(not yet improved)

Furthest north, the plan for this area includes a series of wide groomed trails. Families with kids will love this private, secluded area serviced by a private snowcat or side-by-side, depending on the skier group size.

west face

150 Acres / 1,070' Vertical / 11,350' Peak
(not yet gladed)

Off the backside of Cimarron Ridge, this area opened for the first time this past winter, allowing access to steep meadows and great tree skiing. In time, it is proposed to glade a significant portion of this terrain for what will be some of the best tree skiing on property.

The National Forest and public lands adjacent to CMC's private ski areas are open for hiking and skiing, among other activities. CMC is working with the authorities to agree upon the most appropriate permits or authorizations, if any, required for CMC’s Guides to lead Members and their Guests in these areas.
