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!

Boot pack to lake. Maybe 5 inches of powder, slightly wind crusted in open areas.
