From the Summit. The primary ski is down the south face of Mt Toll. there are a couple of different options from an open snow field to a fairly narrow couloir. Both of which provide nice turns. Once down from the main snow field and conditions permitting make you way back to Blue Lake and follow the same trail you took on the way in to get out.[more]
This is a hut just north of Vail, about 7 miles. The hut sleeps 18, and is wonderful on the inside. The ski terrain is spectacular right out of the front door, and you can do anything from 450' to 1200' descents
How to Get There
There are two ways by which to access the hut, Red Sandstone Road, or the Spraddle Creek Trail. The road is accessible to snowmobiles, whereas the trail is a hiking trail. The road is 8 miles versus the 6 mile trail with great scenery.
