Description

Andrews Glacier is a wide, open, east-facing glacier that drops down to Andrews Tarn. There are many ways to ski it, including a couple of steeper entrances to both the north and south of the glacier. This is not an overly steep or technically advanced area, but it's still steep enough to slide and is often wind loaded. The end of the descent is a formidable terrain trap, and steep terrain to either side poses a potential threat.
