Description

Park on the north side of Park Cone, by the Taylor Reservoir. Ideally there will be a skintrack for you to follow to the summit of this peak, though it is less-skied than many lines on this site and you may have to put in your own track. Take the most mellow line you can build to the summit and then enjoy a long ski back to your car/the reservoir.

The Konsella's "Backcountry Ski & Snowboard Routes: Colorado" has excellent beta for both downhill lines and the ascent of this mountain.
