“Moderately difficult tree run with guaranteed powder and zero people.”— Kevin Gillest
Drop In Point:
When dropping Roberts Head Wall you are heading north, but when dropping 6.1 you are heading west, down and slightly right toward 7 mile trail and Second Creek trailhead in the distance.There are lots of down trees and obstacles, but a good fall line. We actually found a fairly large opening that can be seen from 40 between Second Creek and First Creek. The first 1/2 of the line trees are spaced well with a moderate fall line. The second half is steeper than anticipated with tighter trees.
We ended up in a creek bed, heading right, that eventually connected to the Roberts Creek, and eventually 7 Mile Trail and the Fraser River. After a mile on the 7 mile trail following the Fraser river you end up at Highway 40. This is the last switchback heading to Winter Park.
