Father Dyer Postal Route Ski Race
Discover North America’s highest backcountry ski race! The Father Dyer Postal Route is a ski mountaineering team race held each April in the Mosquito Range east of Leadville, Colorado.
This challenging course takes racers up three peaks over 12,000′, including Centennial 13er Dyer Mountain (13,855’), and involves three demanding backcountry ski lines.
The route is named for John Lewis Dyer, who crossed these mountains on skis as a minister and postal carrier serving the mining camps in Alma and Leadville.
