Peak 10 Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"There is a certain breed of people in the state of Colorado who refuse to let go of ski season and will do whatever it takes to find snow to ski. There are a small number of tucked-away bowls, couloirs, and slopes that can provide year-round turns, but none is more noticeable (or arguably more enjoyable) than the 4th of July Bowl on Peak 10 above Breckenridge. On an average snow year, the bowl can hold skiable snow well into summer, sometimes even as late as Independence Day (hence the name).

Anyone who has ever hiked up around Peaks 9 and 10 on a late June weekend has almost certainly stumbled upon a crowd of people skiing this bowl and partying it up in true Colorado spirit. When the amount of skiable vertical gets amusingly small, we’ve even seen skiers and boarders set up a mini–terrain park, complete with rails and all."
