Need to Know

This is Class 3 avalanche terrain.

Description

This giant avalanche path is a great line when conditions are safe enough. From the summit, drop into Sin Nombre's broad north-facing bowl. The line levels out on a bench then drops into a steeper, narrow couloir to skier's left. Exit the couloir onto another broad face, and at treeline follow the open avalanche path to a ledge before the runout leads to an open wetland known as The Bog.
