Berthoud Pass guidebook?

I could have sworn there was a guide book/bible out there for the Berthoud Pass backcountry but I am striking out googling it... So what is the title and where can I buy it??? Por favor...

PM Shan on Telemarktips. He seems to have the most info. If you search you may find a thread with all the info too.

There is a book for Front Range spring descents. It covers some stuff on Berthoud pass. Otherwise I don't think there is a guide for the place, and it should be that way. No worries, the pass is easy to figure out. The nice thing about it is you can "discover" what it has to offer as you go on. Hook up with some people at the top of the pass and do a tour with them. I do it all the time. I generally look for the people who are coming avy prepared as they tend to have a better chance of having some bc knowledge than all the bootpacking snowboarders and skiers.
Now a days I am generally the one giving the tours, still there is a ton of terrain out there. I am looking forward to doing more exploring this year.

I know that I saw an online guide at one time, I couldn't find it again. It was on one of the Friends of Berthoud Pass type websites.

Hah! Found it.

It was Coloradofirstrax or coloradofirsttrax.com. Long since gone. You might be able to find it on some of those web archive pages. Good stuff on there about BUtler Gulch, Wolf Creek, and some other spots. It is a bummer they are gone.

Damn, I could have sworn someone told me there was a bible for that pass, oh well, I did start to figure out some of the better areas of the pass last year but was hoping there was a comprehensive guide. Jonesin' hard if you can't tell!!!

I also found Coloradofirstrax on the web archives. Good info is there on other backcountry objectives. Enjoy!
