Avalanche risk for Nov 18, 2018: Low

Generally safe avalanche conditions. Watch for unstable snow on isolated terrain features. Natural and human-triggered avalanches unlikely.

The most used, most direct track south of the pass toward Mt. Elly with access to numerous lines on either side.

Description

Whether you drive or hitch up The Pass, your reward is a skintrack that is primarily a traverse with very gradual climbs. From this track, you can access Powder Reserves, Shiver's Ridge, Titty Mouse Ridge, Olympic Bowl, KB Ridge, Avalanche Bowl, and The Claw with the option to drop west toward Thanksgiving Bowl, Christmas Tree Bowl, and Edelweiss, not to mention the terrain off Mt. Elly like Triple Direct, Dimensions, and Yoyo Wall. Needless to say, you can find just about anything here depending on conditions and abilities.
