Overview

The broad southern snowfield accessed from the west plateau at 11,800' is a more reliable line than the Saint Vrain Mountain: South Slope Direct Line.

Need to Know

This should be considered avalanche terrain. Ski with a partner, analyze snow pack, know and conservatively interpret the forecast, and ALWAYS have your probe, beacon, and shovel.

Description

Follow the approach for the East Ridge to the summit of Saint Vrain Mountain. To reach the more reliable line originating at the plateau, continue west from the summit for under a half mile the top of the snowfield at the broad bench at 11,800'. Ski the South Slopes to tree line and climb back up the descent route to the summit.
