Trail shared by J. Bella

Taos Ski Valley's iconic couloir that can be seen from the parking lots.

J. Bella
Type: Backcountry or Sidecountry

Description

This steep and narrow-cut couloir holds snow through June on a good year. Follow the Vorndran route or drop into Wildy Bowl from Kachina Peak and climb this classic Taos backcountry couloir to enjoy the cosmic vibes of the New Mexican mountains. Watch for rocks and thin snow where the couloir opens at the bottom.
