Boreas Pass, at an elevation of 11,499 feet, follows the old grade of the Denver, South Park & Pacific Railroad that crossed the Continental Divide on its way from Como to Breckenridge. At the summit, visitors can see the Section House and remnants of the snow sheds that once protected the railroad from the drifting snow that blows through the pass in winter. The Section House and neighboring Ken’s Cabin serve as ski huts during the winter. A driving tour brochure is available for the Boreas Pass Road to guide you on your journey. Most passenger vehicles can reach the summit of Boreas Pass from either Park County or Summit County and the U.S. Forest Service maintains a winter closure gate just north of Robert’s Cabin.
