The first section is the steepest and then the line mellows out. Follow the glacier all the way to the toe. Once done follow a faint climbers trail to the lake below. At the lake a a good trail is on the North side, follow this trail by Helene lake and back to the car.[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.
