Heightened avalanche conditions on specific terrain features. Evaluate snow and terrain carefully; identify features of concern. Natural avalanches unlikely; human-triggered avalanches possible.

Probably the most interesting line off of Grays Peak.

Description

From the summit, follow the southeast ridge to the obvious entrance to the couloir. The steep descent thankfully offers plenty of safe zones to hide while partners descend. Watch for a cornice that forms on the skier's right.
