Welcome to Colorado. We've got lots of great backcountry skiing, however if it's your first winter here, I recommend you hook up with some folks that are experienced with the mid-continent snowpack and avalanche danger. Not only is the skiing awesome when the snow's good but it's probably one of the most deadly snowpacks of anywhere in the world close to a population center. Right now you'll see tracks in some pretty rad looking places but remember that just because some idiot skied it and got lucky doesn't mean you will be as lucky. There's lots involved in what makes a slope pop loose - time of day and temperature, storm and weather history, force applied, and it can change minute by minute - someone else's tracks on a face don't mean it's safe.
On a good year a lot of the "classic lines" and rad descents usually aren't safe to ski until mid-March or April, and this is a long way from a good year.
Have fun and be safe,
Nothing in the world is more yielding and gentle than water. Yet it has no equal for conquering the resistant and tough. The flexible can overcome the unbending; the soft can overcome the hard. - Lao Tse
