Need to Know

This line tops out closer to 35+ degrees, reporting 23 could lead to a bad accident on this avy prone slope. 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!

Short and easy both ways. Spring now I wouldn't ski it any later than 10:00. Wonderful views — 10h 00m
