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.

Details

From downtown Flagstaff this is the largest peak that you can see on the left side of the mountains to the north of town, Humpreys is hidden behind it.  This peak has alot of different lines coming from its summit in all directions.  Its most classic line is the Monti Vista chute that is visible from Flagstaff.  The ski resort is also built on the west ridge of Agassiz allowing for easy access.
