This lies outside the resort boundaries of Breckenridge, but is most easily accessed from the lifts, or by 4x4 (when dry).

Overview

I D5 R1
Usually best skied in the late spring to summer months, this line is readily accessible by hiking from the chairlift or by 4x4-ing. One of the easiest 13er skis out there!

Need to Know

Show up on July 4th with hundreds of other senders to participate in the PEAK 10 CLASSIC, complete with a wiggle (think berms for your skis) and three (usually large) kickers at the bottom! It's a fantastic fundraising event, with music, competitions, and prizes, not to mention some of the last good skiing in the state for the summer. Bring your bbq and a ride (or hitch-hike)!

Description

If the road is dry and the ski resort is closed, the approach can be significantly shortened by taking a capable car to the base of the snowfield. To do so, make sure you have some offroad knowledge and 4x4 capability (think: more than a Subaru).

Otherwise, take the Falcon SuperChair and begin the hike/skin uphill to Peak 10. Starting at the flagpole on the summit, ski northeast. Make turns down the wide-open bowl until you get to the lift or your car, whichever comes first.
