Berthoud Pass itself is a well-maintained, but switchback-laden mountain pass that leads directly to Winter Park and of course, its main draw, the Winter Park Ski Resort. After ten years or more of road improvements, this old 2-lane highway has been transformed into a 4-lane alternating highway that is now more conducive to the high number of travelers this road sees year after year.
Corona Pass is a mountain pass with an elevation of 11,660 feet; it is located on the Continental Divide, southwest of Boulder, and it sits about five miles above the Winter Park Ski Area (between Winter Park and Rollinsville) on the boundary of Boulder and Grand Counties. Though it was once a route into Boulder County, it is no longer passable, but with care, a vehicle can travel the unpaved road to the summit in the summer; otherwise, ATV's and snowmobiles are probably the best way to tour this scenic area.
