Several of us converged on Breck for a pretty dang epic day. Worthy of a standalone trip report. As many as six of us skiing together at one time and several of us skied from bell to bell. Here are a few photos to illustrate a gorgeous spring day and hopefully proof that BRECK AIN'T FLAT.
The group, left to right: Jamesj, Bamaman, Pat, Habacomike, Bob, SkiNEwhere
Bamaman in Bliss bowl off the Kensho Peak 6 chair.
Again. Note rocky peak to left, believe called Six Senses. Three of our group set off to ski that.
Jamesj getting some Bliss too, it was perfect cream cheese at this time of day, approx 1130am.
Meanwhile SkiNEwhere (at top), Habacomike (2nd from top), and Pat (4th from top) starting the hike up Peak 6.
This is where they wind up. The three of them are standing on top of the world, pretty close to 13000 feet.
SkiNEwhere is the first to drop in and successfully negotiates a steep tight throat.
68 year old Pat goes next, a little more over to the lookers left. Habacomike called this line North Chute.
This shot shows Habacomike dropping in and Pat finishing up.
Habacomike doing sweeper duties. He's a real gentleman.
Habacomike and Pat left us to prepare for Ski Instructor exams. And later SkiNEwhere took me on a little tamer adventure in the E Chair neighborhood. Mike leading into Needles Eye:
Me (Jamesj) heading down Needles Eye too. This was perhaps a little beyond my ability level.
Survival skiing isn't so photogenic. Very steep, very tight trees.
We moved on to a glade in the same area called Windows with a little wider tree spacing. Sticker placement was a prerequisite for entry, we're snuggled up next to Sugarloaf.
Windows was a piece of cake for SkiNEwhere.
One final airing of the laundry.
GREAT DAY with some great compadres. I have fallen in love with Breckenridge during my lengthy western trip.
Somewhere on Epicski there is some video of the guys making the Six Senses runs?
