BackCountry Skiing French Gulch to Baldy in Breckenridge Colorado HD
Backcountry skiing opens up the doors to incredible adventure options outside of the Breckenridge Ski Resort Boundaries. This extended access comes with the cost of higher risk, and you must expect to see avalanches or come prepared with a shovel, Probe, and beacon to assess the terrain for yourself. Any and all terrain above 28% is suspect to avalanche danger. That being said, there are plenty of places to go with limited danger. But keep in mind, you are your own ski patroller out here for avalanche mitigation and medical issues.
The B&B Trailhead is located a 1/4 mile up the French Gulch road from the County Boy Mine to the right. The parking lot can accommodate around 15 to 20 cars and is usually a gathering spot for dog walkers, snow shoers, cross country skiers and back country skiers. The trip from here up to the top of Baldy will be about 20 miles round trip. The area I covered in this video was around 11 miles round trip above tree-line and skiing down through the trees.
There are a lot of areas around here to discover and more videos will be on the way of other places to explore and get outdoors!
