Coon Hill, SE Face

Coon Hill (12757'), which is very prominent from Frisco, has very easy access from the pulloff on the W side of the tunnel and so it gets skied a lot. Start hiking uphill immediately to a bit of a bench, then keep on to reach the saddle between the summit and the southern sub-summit. On descent from the summit keep to the right after the first 500 feet for an efficient route back to the car. Ghere is fine skiing down the NE side as well. In winter one can start here and continue along the entire ridge back to Ptarmigan Peak and Silverthorne. Here is a shot of Todd Beck just below the summit on June 4, 2008.
