Description

Eldorado offers a variety of lines off the top ranging from intermediate to more technically advanced. Scout your line from the basin at 7500 ft before making the summit push.

Ski the ridgeline down for some casual turns or cut off early and tag line into the basin. Just make sure it goes through!

Cross the flats and ski the Eldorado Glacier nearly 2000 ft of playful fall line skiing before you have to climb back up over the ridge and ski the Eldorado drainage out.

History & Background

Probable first winter ascent by Donald Goodman and party March 14, 1981.
