This area does slide so be terrain aware.

Description

From the Washington Gulch trailhead, head out on the groomed road. After approximately 0.4 miles, you can leave the snowmobile traffic behind and cut a track along the west side of Washington Gulch Creek. Stay below the trees here for ease of travel.

Finally, after 1.6 miles, head west to begin your ascent of Coney's Ridge. The route here is steep and will require numerous switchbacks.

Once you gain the ridge, head north to soak up the views and scope your line.
