A low angle approach following a summer road.

Description

There are access routes to Goose Creek that skin up the general descent route but in order to maintain a loop that separates those going up from those going down, an uptrack is located South of the powder fields oft-skied on the descent.

Follow the summer road which is often snowmobile groomed and goes quickly. After passing the powder fields on your right, proceed past two small gullies and come to a former clearcut. Make your way uphill here picking your line as you go if the track is not in. Gain the ridge and proceed to whatever high point you wish to drop in from.
