“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.
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.
