Visiting in Winter

During the winter there is no motorized traffic allowed on the Gothic Road and skis or snowshoes are the preferred method of transportation.

Please be aware that there can be avalanche danger in winter.

RMBL offers two huts for winter use in Gothic. Both huts are available for skiers and snowshoers and are booked through the Crested Butte Nordic Center (CBNC). The CBNC also offers backcountry tours, guides and equipment.

You can now take the bus to the Gothic Trailhead, also known as the Snodgrass parking lot, during the winter months.  Check out the routes and schedules here.

Many thanks to Mountain Express for this great service!

    Avery Cabin is a cozy home for one of RMBL's winter caretakers.
