Featured Descent

Colorado » Wolf Creek Pass

Hour Glass

The Descent is the obvious funnel on the north side of the 11583 knob.  This line chokes down to about five feet wide and then opens up again for the exit of the avy path.  Be cautious!! If the bowl up top rips it will carry you over 50+ foot rocks.

Details

Butler gulch is an off-chute of Jones pass although motorized vehicles are prohibited.

How to Get There

Take I-70 West to the US 40 Empire exit.  Follow US 40 until right before you make the first switchback as if you were headed up Berthoud Pass, where you will make a left onto the Henderson Mine road.  (Note:  You will see a sign a couple hundred yards before this that says Jones Pass 2 3/4 miles, it's the first left turn before that.)  Follow the Henderson mine road and make a right onto a dirt and snow covered road just before the gate.  (there's a huge sign that says Skiers and Snowmobiliers parking this way).  Drive up the road aways, if your in a snowmobile please park in the lower lot, if your on skis feel free to drive up to the higher lot.  This puts you at the beginning of the Jones Pass road.

Part at the Jones Pass winter closure.  Follow the Jones pass road for about 150 yards before taking a left at the signed junction for Butler Gulch.
