Mineral Creek

Park at the end of Mineral Creek Road. In the summer months the road will continue into the valley, but is closed in winter months for x-c skiing and snow machine use. Enter the valley on the Mineral Creek Trail that is well maintained. Cross the river on the metal bridge and walk, snowshoe, ski, or machine on the main trail for approximately a quarter of a mile until the main climbs become easily visable on the right (east) side of the valley. After the main ski trails end, continue on the snow machine trail to access routes farther up the valley.

ALERT: This area exists in high avalanche danger. Pay attention to conditions before getting on these routes.
