“A great, sustained, steep descent for nearly 4000 ft.”— Ryan O
Be careful not to descend too far and end up well below the return trail and the main trailhead. You could potentially end up down in Morrison Campground instead of back at Cold Springs. Traverse hard skiers left once you exit the chutes; depending on the snowpack, boot packing sections may be mandatory.
