What's in this Area?
One of my favorite lines in the front range with lots of options. You can ski the couloir between the double summits for a nice 40 degree pitch with rock wall on either side.
You can also ski the Northeast face. Not sure on the slope angle but it is a open face with limited exposure.
You can ski the South East face for a more mellow descent (better if you started at Butler Gultch) with amazing terrain and small playful features all the way down.
**Take all necessary avalanche precautions. It is not uncommon to get a lot of wind loading in this area due to its proximity to the divide.**
Geissler offers a couple of lines to ski, with options for other easily connected descents in the area.
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.
