Type: Backcountry or Sidecountry
The line is super obvious during your hike in. You can see it for most of the hike. Once you find the entrance to the line, it is straightforward from there. Head straight down the gut till you get to a clearing.
You'll want to get an early start for this adventure. The line is southeast-facing, but it does see a lot of sun. The trickiest part is the hike up the side of Ross Peak. You may want to remove the skis and boot up this section.
Once you get to the entrance, strap in and have a good time. No getting lost, or tricky turns on this line. Just make big fat turns down the couloir to your hearts content.
As always, be extra vigilant with avalanche awareness. It may be difficult to dig a snow pit before you get in the couloir on a similar slope, but obviously do what you can. We cut a line above the couloir before we skied it, and sure enough got it to slide. It wouldn't be pretty being caught in the gut of it if it slid. So be wary!
