An easy skin up Santa Fe Peak Rd.

Pat Kelly
Type: Backcountry or Sidecountry

Description

A moderate skin up Santa Fe Peak Rd. yields access to the gully systems on Tip Top and Morgan Peaks. These low touring peaks outside Montezuma, CO provide excellent skiing through avalanche gullys that run out into the Peru Creek drainage.

The parking area at the base of the road is VERY SMALL. Set up a shuttle from the Peru Creek parking lot, or walk your happy ass up there. Be respectful of homeowners if you decide to cut between switchbacks.
