Pretty open bowl with a number of options, there a couple of tinier chutes that are created by tree gullies and rock areas throughout the line. Basically choose your own adventure skiing! After you ski the line head SW through the bottom part of the opening and follow the hill line south. This will meet you back up with the road where you can skin right back up to the hut.[more]
Humphreys Cirque is the obvious east facing bowl on the opposite side from the ski area. The bowl starts from the summer trail sign at the lowest saddle between Mt. Humpreys and Agassiz Peak up to the summit of Humpreys. This area has a number of lines with the most classic known as Heck Yea.
How to Get There
The easiest way to access the Humprey's Cirque is to leave from the ski area. Do not follow the summer trail unless there is no snow and you can hike to treeline. The fastest way is to follow the ski run "Sundance" up the bowl and take the obvious ridge line up out of the bowl to the E/NE. If you take the lift, follow the skin track across the bowl to the left/northeast. The goal of both these routes is to end up at the saddle where there is a trail sign. From here the Humpreys Cirque is directly in front of you.
