The long, mostly flat approach to the base of the lines in Dry Gulch.

Tom Robson
Type: Backcountry or Sidecountry

Description

Start parallel to I-70 and head down the road grade that eventually tips upwards, climbing into Dry Gulch. This approach isn't hard, per se, but it is fairly long, especially if you factor in the climbing you'll inevitably have to do to get to good skiing.
