More snow at Breck
The powder hounds are out and chasing after the good stuff. Breckenridge Ski Resort received six inches of new snow last night making for a total of two feet in the last seven days.
Today, we rode first chair up the T-Bar lift to the top of Horseshoe Bowl to see what goodies we would be able to find. The first run we took was down Mule, an open bowl run on the skier’s right hand side of Horseshoe Bowl. Nothing can beat the feeling of making long sweeping powder carves down Breck’s iconic alpine bowls.
The second run we took was through the woods of Cucumber Bowl. Cucumber Bowl can be accessed by staying high on the ridge, on the skier’s left hand side of Horseshoe Bowl, and then dropping to the right or staying high in the woods once you reach tree line. This hidden gem is great for finding fresh tracks long after all the other areas have gotten skied out. Just be sure to never duck ropes or ski into the T-Bar lift track as it is against the rules and can be very dangerous.
With all the great snow we have been getting the past few weeks, Breckenridge Ski Resort is 90 percent open, and we don’t plan on stopping anytime soon. This season is really shaping up to be a good one and we would not want any of our fellow powder hounds out there to miss out on getting their howl on as they make their way down our powder covered glades.
After you finish skiing or snowboarding powder to your heart’s delight, head on down to The Maggie restaurant located at the base of Peak 9. Maggie’s Mug Club is a great way to get the best out of your après ski experience and daily food and drink specials.
