Great line! Skied out pretty bad, the last snow was more than a week past. A little steeper than my personal preference. History

Getting forecast...

Avalanche risk for Feb 20, 2018: Considerable

Dangerous avalanche conditions. Careful snowpack evaluation, cautious route-finding and conservative decision-making essential. Natural avalanches possible; human-triggered avalanches likely.

Stellar skiing through an avalanche gully on Tip Top Peak outside Montezuma, CO.

Pat Kelly

Need to Know

Leave a car at the Peru Creek trailhead and shuttle or (preferably) walk up to Santa Fe Peak Rd. to access the skin track/road leading to the ridge.

Description

Stellar skiing in the 30-35 degree range on the lightly gladed upper section yields to denser trees and fun gully skiing down below. Everything funnels back down to the skin track at the bottom. Be wary of avalanche danger - the nature of the path screams terrain trap...and large avalanches have released in this area and run out to Peru Creek.

A great little gully run. The snow was very stable and we had a great line. Lots of other potential lines in the zone
