The most skied line off the South Diamond Peak.

Overview

Type: Backcountry or Sidecountry

Need to Know [Suggest Changes]

While this is most likely the safest line off the South Diamond, it is definitely still serious avalanche terrain. It's east facing, contains a convex roller, and peaks out at about 35% (depending on how far right you ski). Ski this line with the knowledge that large portions of the South Diamond face usually slide about once a year, this run included.

Description [Suggest Changes]

After taking the South Diamond Ascent, follow the first open section with some small trees to your left and towards the bottom of the run. This run is skied a lot because of its ability to be lapped quickly and the fact that is usually holds some good snow.
