Surveying the Jenny Creek/Guinn Hut Trail to Arestua Hut for the 2009-2010 season

I went out yesterday to survey the Jenny Creek and Guinn Mountain Trail to the Arestua Hut. I was only able to make it up to the pipe line and Eldora Ski Area Access, which is about one mile in, and around 500 vertical feet. Once you turn the corner and start the initial decent, there is too much exposure. You could easily continue on foot or with snow shoes, as some people were doing, but I decide to tuck back into the shade and north slopes, where there was more snow. If you can get out there after a storm, I bet you'd be able to make it a lot further. No matter though, it was great to be out there!
