Trail shared by Ross Morgan

A steep, classic couloir.

Ross Morgan
Type: Backcountry or Sidecountry

Need to Know

There are some cliffs to avoid near the bottom of the run so best done with visibility. The skier's right side is slightly less steep near the bottom of the run.

Description

A popular sidecountry outing from Whistler-Blackcomb. Access from the Blackcomb backcountry entrance eventually gaining Spearhead Glacier (numerous options exist). From Spearhead Glacier, a skin/bootpack gains a notch to the start of the run.

The run ends at Blackcomb Glacier Road; continue down to Crystal Chair, Excelerator, or Valley Bottom.
