Welcome to the Google Earth Map showing ALL the mountains of Colorado! This tool can be used in a variety of ways and is useful to a variety of user types. 14erskiers.com featured this tool as a very useful way of planning backcountry ski trips. This tool can also be used to zoom in or out to see more or less terrain. You can also use the tool to pan your view up or down, so that you can view a mountain as if you were near it or even on it. Play around with the tool a bit - you can view horizontally from a mountain's summit! Lastly, the mountains are color-coded by their Omnidirectional Relief and Steepness (ORS or Spire) scoring.

Google Map View of ALL Colorado Summits

Written by

Welcome to the Google Map showing ALL the mountains of Colorado! This tool can be used in a variety of ways and is useful to a variety of user types. 14erskiers.com featured this tool as a very useful way of planning backcountry ski trips. Lastly, the mountains are color-coded by their Omnidirectional Relief and Steepness (ORS or Spire) scoring.

Red = (ORS>300)- These are very impressive summits.

Orange = (200-300)

Green = (100-200)

Blue = (ORS<100) - The least impressive summits.

Thank you to David Metzler for his incredible work on the ORS concept and scores for these summits.
