Update

This NE-facing bowl holds great powder days after storms. This line teases out the max vertical.

Need to Know

The biggest area of concern on this line is the cornice that forms on the ridgeline. In places, it is large and could be easily dislodged. Use caution and be aware.

Description

Lick Creek Road is closed in winter months. Access is typically attained via snowcat or snowmobile. Human powered access would be difficult, (10+ miles into this ski zone).
This line, (1000 ft. vertical), starts out with some steep tree skiing. The trees are sparse, due to a recent fire in the area. There are several large rocks, logs and rollovers that make for some interesting terrain for the adventurous. The top 400 feet is NE facing aspect in the sparse trees down into an open bowl.

At this point, the line transitions to skiers right and down an open east facing slope with some rollovers, gullies and scattered brush. If you drift to far skiers right, there are some bigger cliffs to watch out for. Finish in the obvious wide drainage. Transition to skins, and go back for another lap, or pick any of a dozen other small peaks. There are countless lines in this area in the 500' - 1500' vertical range and almost all of them will be untracked. You can also link up The Beast Chute from this point in the canyon.
