Trail shared by Missy Thompson

Skin track to Coal Creek skiing.

Missy Thompson
Type: Backcountry or Sidecountry

Description

From the parking lot at the top of Coal Bank Pass cross the highway and head north into the trees. Avoid the open areas at the start and stick to climbers right to avoid avalanche terrain. From here the ascent generally follows the Pass Creek Trail. This is a popular area, so there will likely be an obvious skin track. Climb as high as you want and access great skiing off the north side of the ridge.
