Climbing Apache via the beautiful upper South Saint Vrain drainage and the Isabelle Glacier provides a fun day with beautiful scenery and a killer 2,000' ski descent as reward.
From Brainard Lake head up the South Saint Vrain drainage to Lake Isabelle and on to the Isabelle Glacier. From the Southwest corner of the glacier the route takes the steep snow ramp to a saddle below Apache's summit.
Climb early while the snow is frozen and time your descent to catch the corn.
