Avalanche risk for Nov 26, 2017: Low

Generally safe avalanche conditions. Watch for unstable snow on isolated terrain features. Natural and human-triggered avalanches unlikely.

Asia Bowl is similar to USA Bowl but less busy because of the longer approach.

Overview

Asia Bowl is exposed to the southwesterly winds and sun, so the snow is often sub-par. And the upper ridgeline is frequently thin and windblown, but after a storm, Asia Bowl can be epic.

Description

From the Guardsman Pass Trailhead follow the road up to the hairpin turn. From there follow the Scotts Backdoor approach to Scotts Pass. Follow the road up on the north side of the pass until you reach the ridge. The steepest part of the bowl is just above and below the road as your hiking up to the ridgeline. To find softer slopes, follow the ridgeline a few hundred feet towards Scott Hill and then start your descent. From the bottom of the valley it's a safe and easy skin back to Scott's Pass.
