This run rather starts at the top of the upper col. or atop the saddle and runs down Lavender Col.

Type: Backcountry or Sidecountry

Need to Know

The upper col. is very steep and narrow, much harder than the rest of the skiing. It can funnel snow rocks and people down to a nasty life changing result. If you are not up for it, drop your skis atop Lavender Col and hike the upper for the summit.

Description

Start skiing at the top of the upper col. (look out for cornice) or the top of Lavender Col. ski down the awesome line all the way back to the car.
