Skiing The Fish Creek Falls Canyon:

But are you ready to ski the “canyon”? Accessible from the ski area is some of Steamboat’s premier back country skiing. The Fish Creek Canyon collects a lot of snow and has been a locals favorite place to ski for many years. The snow is deep and the terrain is steep. There are cliffs, shoots, key holes and big pine glades of snow. Nothing is roped off and there are no groomed exit catwalks. So guess what, YOYO (You’re On Your Own). So be prepared with beacons and back country gear when entering this area as it is technically out of bounds. If you get lost or need to be rescued you will be sent a BIG BILL from search and rescue.
