Summit County has completed avalanche debris removal on the Tenmile Canyon Recreational Pathway between Frisco and Copper Mountain. This segment of the Recpath is projected to open for public use in the evening Friday, June 21, once all equipment has been removed. The pathway remains closed from Copper Mountain south to its Highway 91 terminus while contractor RPM Construction continues additional avalanche debris removal on that section. 

As of yet, crews have found no major damage to the pathway caused by the historic avalanche event in March.

Users are urged to use the canyon path with caution, as precarious conditions may still exist from the recent disturbance. Watch out for icy sections, falling debris and be cautious with reduced sightlines.
