There is something for everyone at CMC in Leadville

Colorado Mountain College in Leadville student activities include everything from movie nights and disc golf tournaments to skiing events and trips to Denver.

Several Tenth Mountain Association backcountry huts are nearby for overnight winter trips. A 20-station fitness trail and 8 kilometers of cross-country ski trails are available on campus for students.

Students enjoy the backyard terrain park, located on the backside of the Mountain View Residence Hall, all winter long.  Maintained by Ski Area Operations (SAO), the features are constantly changing due to weather and use.  Make sure to get some practice in early because you do not want to miss the Annual Rail Jam, hosted by SAO every March.

The Mineral Belt Trail is an 11.6 mile, all-season, non-motorized, ADA accessible route that loops the city of Leadville and has multiple access points near campus.  CMC students help groom the trail during the winter months for cross country skiing, and students enjoy running and biking the trail in the summer.

The Events and Activities Calendar is continuously being updated.  Make sure to check back often so that you don’t miss out on any of the fun!
