Backcountry Skiing Areas

Featured Descent

Colorado » Rocky Mountain National Park

Dragon’s Tail Couloir

This is a straight forward descent, make sure you are in the right couloir.  There are cliffs and hazards all around this area.  It is a steep, 50 degree, ski run that can be dangerous.  Timing is important on a ski descent like this one.  The Left side is wider and a little less steep compared to the right side of the Y.  There are safety zones the whole way down.
