Pick your way through the tight trees in the upper part of the drainage, and then you'll see it open up. If there is enough snow, there are pillow options aplenty straight down the gut. Venture left or right and the drops get bigger, up to about 20 feet if you're feeling good.
At the bottom of the gully, don't miss the skin track that cuts left underneath the east-facing parts of the Terrain Park. Follow this all the way back to the Dream Lake trail (Don't drop in thinking it'll take you back to your car, it won't).[more]
Glenwood and Carbondale are both right off of I 70 west of Vail. From here you have great access to Sunlight Ski Resort as well as the Roaring Fork Valley. There is great access to plenty of skiing back here, not to mention the hot springs in Glenwood.
How to Get There
Just head west of the Front Range on I70 and you will cross through Glenwood Springs. From here there are plenty of great backcountry ski areas to tap into
