Description

Breckenridge Ski Resort stretches across 5 peaks, but if you’re looking for the expert’s playground with moguls and tight trees, in and around peak 10 is where you want to be. If you’re keen to move around a bit though, there are a few other ski tours around the Breckenridge area that might strike your fancy.

Just south of "Peak 9/10", you can access "Herb’s Bowl" through a long skin from the bottom of Spruce Creek Trailhead. Head north and check out Keystone for "High Voltage – Morgan Peak" or even northwest near Silverthorne where you’ll find "Silver Couloir". When the avalanche danger gets high around Vail, "Uneva Ridge" is a solid place to check out for some low angle pow laps.
