Betty Bear descent all the way to Diamond J

Post by PociID » Mon Jan 30, 2012 12:01 am

I have a question on feasibility of skiing from Betty Bear to Diamond J at Montgomery Flats. I understand FS505 is the TH but is it possible to continue down the road on skis all the way to the Diamond J. Time frame would be the end of March '12.

Thanks!!

If you wanted to ski from the 505 trail head all the way to Diamond J you best bet is to try and find some snow along the road (which may not be there depending on the plowing) and ski to Granite Lakes and then follow our trail from Granite Lakes up and over to Norrie and then on to the Diamond J. The Fryingpan River Road is plowed during the winter all the way to the 505 trail head so skiing down the road is not an option, nor is trying to ski beside the road because of private property you would cross.
