Need to Know

This line picks its way through very rocky terrain and can be unreliable at times. Consider this area an avalanche zone and take appropriate precautions.

Saint Vrain Mountain is generally considered a spring skiing location.

Description

Follow the approach for the East Ridge to the summit of Saint Vrain Mountain. The direct south slopes are accessed via a quick scramble over rocks from the summit to the southwest. Follow the obvious line between rock formations as it descends into the glades below. Ski the line to the edge of the trees, then climb back up to the summit to repeat the descent, pick another line, or ski out.
