Pass Bagger is a term for those that cross mountain passes to experience the best scenery and curvy roads.
Every year since we moved to Colorado in 1984 I've kept track of mountain
passes that we've bagged traveling by car, 4WD vehicle, motorcycle, bicycle, or on foot as a way
to judge whether or not we really toured the mountains like we want to. In 2005 I joined
the Colorado BMW Motorcycle Club, one reason being that I wanted to earn their Pass
Bagger 50 award. The process of searching for the mountain passes around the state led
to the creation of this web site and the spreadsheet. I hope it helps you find some of the great
places around the Colorado Rocky Mountains also.
