Featured Descent

Colorado » Ten Mile Range

NE Couloir or NE face

Depending on snow cover, it may be possible to descend NE off the summit to the open snow field above the NE couloir.  You can also descent east off the summit and traverse skiers left to the snow field above the NE couloir.  When we skied it, the couloir narrowed about half way down the face to about 6 feet (this of course will vary with timing/snow conditions).  Once thru the narrow section, you're basically at the top of the apron, so let 'em rip!!
For extra credit, climb and ski one of the north facing couloirs on North Star Mountain on the way back to the car.

How to Get There

There are a couple of ways to approach Geissler, by either skinning up from the west side of Highway 82 up the valley, or up the continental divide, descend Twining, and then head up to Giessler.  This mountain is a two peaked mountain, with Giessler West and East.
