Need to Know

There is a lot of skiing potential in this area, from mellow to very big lines. Come prepared and check the CIAC reports. For some of the bigger objectives here, it would be better to wait until the snowpack sets up for great spring skiing. Make sure to stop into the Broken Compass Brewery just outside of Breckenridge for that beer you earned.

Description

The ridge line of peak 10 offers the potential for many great runs. You can run as many laps as your legs can stand. Start high up on the ridge line, take in the view from Peak 10, and look at all the folks below you in Breckenridge that have not earned their turns. Yo yo your way back down the valley until its time to head out for food and beer, unless you're one of the lucky ones staying at Francis cabin. Enjoy!
