Travel dates

Bike the 3 miles up (and we mean UP) to Last Dollar Pass and spend the night in a cozy hut with phenomenal views of the Wilsons and Lizard head. The next day get some great downhill and end up in Sawpit. This trip is designed for people who live above 5,000 feet above sea level. The climb up to Last Dollar pass is a an a#$ kicker even in the summer with skinny tires on dirt and don't be ashamed if you find yourself pushing your bike a good bit of the time. The south side of the pass holds less snow than the north side so you may have long sections of dirt on the way up and long sections of snow on the way down. The downhill riding can be more technical than you might expect if it is snowy and/or icy. Helmets are mandatory as you can have some real crashes on this terrain even though it is just a dirt road. If it snows significantly before your trip or is forecast to snow significantly during your trip, you may want cancel your trip or come back another time. We do offer full refunds for fat biking trips. These are the only trips we do this for because you really cannot ride in significant unpacked snow. Dry food for breakfast and dinner is provided, this is not the full stocking of our summer bike huts and you will likely want to bring some supplements to cook up a scrumptious meal, but this will help keep your pack weight down. You can expect to find coffee, tea, hot chocolate, hot cereals, cold cereals, powdered milk, pastas (including gluten free), basmati rice, minute rice, quinoa, couscous, mack and cheese, ramen noodles, and basic spices. Fat bikes are most easily rented from Boot Doctors on Oak Street in Telluride for this Route. Call us if you would like to arrange a shuttle for an additional cost. This is a great way to get out and have some fun before the snow really gets good this year! If you are a biker waiting for ski season, come check this out!
