Perfect, steep couloir from a beautiful peak.

Type: Backcountry or Sidecountry

Overview

Ski the steep couloir from the notch if the conditions are right.

Description

The broad "ski dreams" farther east can be an escape if the conditions are not perfect. From about 11,000ft, follow the drainage to Horse Creek and continue along Horse Creek to Twin Lakes over moderate terrain. All good skiing is above 8200ft.
