Update

An easier and shorter way to access Grizzly Peak than starting at the top of Loveland Pass.

Description

From a pulloff just off Highway 6, park your car and throw on your skins. Skin up the obvious drainage/gully as you slowly move up the backside of Grizzly Peak. It's easiest to shoot for the saddle below Grizzly, because from there you can decide to take the ridge to the summit of Grizzly Peak or ski down and traverse over to your couloir of choice to climb and ski.

Overall, a very fast and direct way to some AWESOME backcountry spring lines!
