Very accessible skiing with lots of varied terrain and difficulty

Pikes Peak Toll Road can grant you access to a ton of super accessible backcountry skiing if you have the equipment and knowledge.  From roughly Glen Cove up to the summit of the mountain you can access terrain varying from steep chutes off the summit to easy glades in an abandoned ski resort.  This is a north facing area, so most of the runs are safest in the spring time. If you are lucky enough to have two cars with you, you can also shuttle from the bottom of the cove to the top of the ridgeline to save you some elevation gain.
