Need to Know

If you exit back to Highway-91 by skiing down the gulch, be sure to keep left as it starts to mellow out to avoid hitting the Ten Mile Creek before the road crosses it.

Description

Take a careful look at your options as you hike up the ridge of Half Dome and pick out your line. There are a number of chutes in the bowl that all funnel into a couple main exits. All the lines look like a lot of fun. The main hazards are dealing with cornices (30'+) and cliff bands.

The bowl faces north-east, so the mix of indirect sunlight and wind-loading makes for good snow. Also, it's very easy to lap by skinning back up the north-west facing chute to the skier's right at the bottom.
