Type: Backcountry or Sidecountry

Need to Know

The bottom of the gully steepens considerably, creating a possible terrain trap.

Description

From the Lost Lake Summit Ascent, descend through the trees to the south. You'll find yourself in a beautiful low angle gully. The gully tends to hold great snow even in windy conditions. The end of the gully steepens considerably, creating a possible terrain trap, so it is advised to cut back to the skin track at this point. Extend the fun by heading over to the Lost Lake Glades!
