Need to Know

This is extreme terrain with extreme weather. You MUST bring warm clothes, food, and water. This is a steep hike to the top and requires plenty of time. Avalanches are a threat in this area.

Description

Hike to the top of the ridge and ski back down! Expect to ski around large rock features in a narrow steep chute at the top, leading to a larger open bowl at the bottom.
