Awesome descent down from Leavitt Peak through a steep bowl and rolling hills.

Ian Bohannon
Type: Backcountry or Sidecountry
The Sonora Pass typically opens early summer. Prior to the pass opening, snowmobiles are required to access this area. Wilderness permits are required if staying overnight.

Overview

This awesome descent from Leavitt Peak drops down the main bowl and continues through the rolling hills with massive cliffs and peaks on either side.

Need to Know

If you choose to start at the Sonora Pass Trailhead, park a second car at the bottom of this run or plan on hitchhiking. This is about a 10-15 drive and is longer than it looks. Don't plan on walking it.

Description

This is the 5-star descent from Leavitt Peak. Drop down the main bowl or the Levitt Peak Y-Couloir and continue down skier's left through amazing rolling hills and enjoy the massive cliffs on both sides. When getting near the road, be careful crossing the creek. Some areas require a short climb to get back to the road.
