Need to Know

This is a spring skiing route. Be aware that unstable snowpack could cause avalanches. Skiing this route will require a long hike out. Do it early in the day when you have the energy to get out.

Description

This line is a sustained steep pitch from the summit to a small tairn sitting in the bowl on the southeast face of Sniktau. There are many lines down this face. Skiers left has a few cornices.

While most choose to climb back out of the bowl to the ridge and return via the ascent rout to Loveland Pass, there are a few other options to get back to civilization. One option is to continue skiing past the tairn and into the Kearney Creek drainage. Follow this to the road. Another option is skiing to the Bakersville Trailhead.
