Need to Know

There are frequent avalanches on this face. Make sure you check the forecast and check conditions when you arrive. Ski smart.

Description

Start at the obvious peak above this section of Route 6 and ski the wide open snow bowl leading back to the road. The face is obvious and visible from Arapahoe Basin and is a great powder run in optimal conditions. Bring sunscreen, water, and a snack!
