“Awesome creek bed ski run with a steep double fall line shoulder entrance.”— Kevin Gillest
This left us to ski a Double Fall Line Entrance, approximately 35-40 degree into the mouth of the creek bed. This section should not be taken lightly, as there are numerous rocks that have to be navigated. We had no bad layers in the snow, and no real potential for slab/crown to break. The sun does not shine on this at all this time of year, making the snow bottomless and awesome!
Once in the mouth of the creek bed we skied on the left side, North Facing slopes until we got down lower into the tight creek bed. But the Creek Bed proper was fully skiable, we choose the North Facing Slopes due to snow quality.
Down lower the creek bed narrows, and the skiing get more challenging. There are lots of rocks and down trees that could be major obstacles if your skiing is sub-par. Once the creek bed tightens down lower, there are numerous avalanche paths that drain into the creek. We choose to NOT ski any of these paths, and spent very little time below any of them. There was a mandatory 15-20' drop down low that we avoided by down climbing on the skiers right side.
