Russell Peak North Shoulder

The North Shoulder is a little bit more mellow, and is often the backup option for people heading up there. You ski almost along the ridge on the north side, back down towards the pumphouse basin.  The north shoulder is generally a little bit sheltered and the snow is a little colder, but it is also windblown.

Details

From Wikipedia: The Tenmile Range is a Mountain Range in Colorado. The range is an extension of the Mosquito Range. The two ranges are effectively the same range. They are split only by the Continental Divide and name. The Tenmile Range is on the west side of the divide, and the Mosquito on the east. The range is often referred to as the Tenmile-Mosquito Range. The range is famous for its skiing, both backcountry and resort areas. There are ten peaks in the range named Peak 1 through Peak 10. Skiing is also on Peaks 7-10 in Breckenridge. The highest point in the range is Quandary Peak with an elevation of 14,265 feet.

How to Get There

There are a number of different ways to get there, and depending on where in the 10 mile range you are going, directions may vary. There are some very long approaches, and some much shorter approaches. If you get off of I-70 and follow Highway 9 towards Breckenridge, this is a good start.
