Need to Know

Caution:
• As many people may or may not know, the 7 Mile run below has caused many people to get lost over the years. Do not take this lightly, be sure to have a GPS before starting down either 3.5 or 3.6. Just remember, the Frazier River is below in the valley, take this left to highway 40 and you'll not have any issues. If you are directionally challenged, you might steer clear of these ski runs.

Description

Parking Area:
Directly across the highway and toward Winter Park, same parking lot as 3.5 Ski Run

Ski Information:
• We headed towards the Second Creek Drainage
• We cross the Creek Bed 5-7 times before reaching the Fraser River
• Be extremely careful in the creek bed, lot of down trees
• Skiing is tight trees, but more continuous than 3.5 ski run
• Cross the Frazier River was no problem, but we had a lot snow
• After cross the Frazier River head left toward Highway 40 switch back, the trail is normally broke and easy to follow
