We will park at Red Mt Pass (11,075 ft) and ski near the St Paul Lodge, heading south and east working our way up to 12,250 ft. where we should be able to look into Prospect Gulch and see Silverton Mountain Ski Area as well as Minnehaha Basin. There will be opportunities to ski laps on 25 degree slopes. Skiers must have climbing skins and the ability to make turns on powder slopes and wind crust, and be able to traverse obstacles and trees. Date may change due to snow conditions.
