Details

From the TH about two miles South of Breckenridge, we will ski to Francie's Cabin via Spruce Creek Road and Aqueduct Road, then venture a short distance above treeline into the picturesque cirque surrounded by Mount Helen, Father Dyer Peak, and Peak 10.  The distance we travel into the cirque will depend of weather and time.  Returning to Francie's, we will ski back down Aqueduct toward the Spruce Creek drainage where we may see wildlife in a treeless area in the valley bottom.  Finally, a relaxing downhill return to the TH.



I don't believe Francie's Cabin has a day-use room, so don't plan on it.  I will find out and let group know beforehand.



Bring touring skis (“skinny skis” preferred.  Telemark skis with wax okay), either waxable or waxless, poles, warm clothes, wind gear, ten essenials.  Bring skins if you have them.  Since we might be above treeline for a short period, be prepared for wind.
