“A beautiful face with multiple lines but requiring major bushwacking to get out.

Need to Know
This is an avalanche area. Use caution. The area is best skied in the spring.
Many skiers note this face of Mount Sniktau as they drive by on I-70. There are various lines down this face. Use caution as the center line is usually the first to melt in the spring.
Serious bushwhacking is required to exit the line to I-70 via the forest below the tree line. A faster and sometimes better option is to re-ascend and ski out the same way you entered.
