“The easiest way to reach Snow Peak if you don't have a Sno-Park Permit.”
— Matt Slagle
Type: Backcountry or Sidecountry
Need to Know
Significant wind loading and 30'+ cornices. Be on your toes and bring a buddy.
The first part of the ski is a bushwhack until you reach the Kettle Crest Trail at the second scree field. Follow the trail through the east bowl, before heading up through the East Arm. Again, follow the trail until the saddle between Snow and Sherman Peaks. Depart from the trail, cutting through the saddle, while steadily climbing the meadowed west face of Snow Peak until the top.
