The Minturn Mile

*Amazon Affiliate Links

From a backcountry gate above Chair 7 at Vail you can access the Minturn Mile. It consists of an initial open face to ski, and then a long drainage exit down to the town of Minturn. You need to leave a car in Minturn so you can shuttle out at the end of the day. Watch out for ice and for other people, especially when you get into the narrow lower section ("the luge"). This is not a run that should be attempted by beginners or people who are unprepared for the dangers of the backcountry.
