Hoop Creek Telegraph

This is a tree run that is a little bit more open under the telegraph lines. The trees get a little bit tighter as you go farther to skiers right, but everything funnels back down to the large switchback at the bottom of Floral Park. There are downed trees and stumps, but no other major hazards there.

Details

I believe Mt Helen (13,164 ft) is considered a sub peak of Crystal.  It's mellow east facing slope can provide good skiing opportunities mid winter (given coverage) thru spring, and it' south slopes contains more exciting options that are more worthy of a spring descent.

How to Get There

One way to get there is by parking at the spruce creek TH (10,400) just south on hwy 9 from Breckenridge (turn off hwy 9 at spruce creek rd.).  Follow the spruce creek road to the plow turn around/parking lot/trail head.
