The most skied line off the South Diamond Peak.

garrett knorr
Type: Backcountry or Sidecountry

Need to Know

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

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.

Skied the ridge and trees along the shoulder. Top is a super hard wind crust, but pretty decent snow in the trees. Feb 11, 2019
