Overview

Ski down one of the couloir options!

Need to Know

Crampons and ice axe needed for the uphill.

Description

Ski down one of the couloir options on the northwest side of Fletcher, which is probably between 40 and 50 degrees in the steepest sections. I climbed and skied the same line, shown on the map, but there are at least three nice looking ways down.

Watch out for rocks at the top—if you're not sure how to get in, it's probably best to ski down the one you climbed.
