Ski just below Breck's Peaks 6&7 with outstanding views from many locations! We will meet at the Breckenridge Nordic Center to obtain trail passes. Discounted day pass is $20/$15 for age 65+. Rental gear is available, but advise leader if renting to allow extra time. Following pass transactions, we will drive from the Nordic Center to the Forest Service Green Gate access. (Alternate for a longer ski, is to ski to the upper trails from the lodge.) The trail starts with a fairly steep climb, +400' in 0.5 mi and continues to climb with loop options that are blue & black rated. The trails are groomed and tracked for classic and skate skis, but narrow backcountry skis are OK. Participants should be comfortable with climbing (herringbone when needed) and descending steep grades. We will have a snack stop at the Hallelujah Hut before returning to the parking area.

Breck Nordic upper trails: "Nestled on the *Upper trails are two destination huts, the Hallelujah Hut and Kathy’s Viewpoint Cabin/Sauna. The 18 X 18 hand hewn square log cabin called the Hallelujah Hut (shown below) was the original “Retort House” for burning gold ore into 20 lbs. gold blocks during historic mining days."
