Breckenridge alternate way into Horseshoe bowl ?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 

Hello, posted this on another board but so far no responses. Does anyone know if I can get into Horseshoe Bowl at Breckenridge any other way than doing the T bar ?

afaik...Imperial lift or hike to it. Do you dislike the T-bar?

One of us skis, the other boards so the T bar is very difficult for boarders.

Chair 6 to Imperial and drop down from the ridge line above down to the Ski Patrol hut at the top of the T-Bar.

 

From the top of Chair 6 you can traverse into Contest Bowl and the side of Horseshoe.

Not to be rude, and I appreciate someone trying to challenge themselves on skis/snowboards, but I have a feeling that someone struggling with a T Bar will struggle in the Horseshoe Bowl.

No offense taken at all, but it is a lot harder to track uphill strapped sideways to a plank than skis, If it wasn't for the fact that my nearly expert buddies have a time with it I wouldn't think so, but,,,,

I see plenty of snowboarders going up on the T-bar. Shouldn't the back foot be unstrapped when riding the T-bar?

 

It'll take you a lot longer to lap Horseshoe and Contest bowls if you ride chair 6 and Imperial chair vs the T-bar.
