Overview

Stellar skiing in the 30-35 degree range on the lightly gladed upper section yields to denser trees and fun gully skiing down below.

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

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
