FrontRunners: Forks Lift

Located in the Sierra Madre mountains along the border between Colorado and Wyoming, the 200,000-acre Three Forks Ranch (www.threeforksranch.com) launched its first full season of snowcat skiing in December. The chairlift-free ski program, which runs through the end of March, provides access to 1,100 vertical feet of untouched powder and eight groomed runs that accommodate all types of skiers.
