Mt. Edwards- Goatfinger Couloir

Goatfinger Couloir is fairly wide, has a bit of a double fall line, and can reach 50 degrees at the top (although when we skied it, it did not exceed 43 degrees).  Although not an extreme line, it is still a serious undertaking that requires expert ski abilities and advanced snow climbing/mountaineering skills.  It is rated D9-D10.

Goatfinger is a major avalanche path and requires very stable snow to be skied safely.

Details

Grays and Torreys peaks are two of the more popular hiking destinations in the summer for people trying to tick off their first “fourteener”. However, during the winter months this area offers some of the steepest and most sustained descents in the Front Range and along the I-70 corridor. Grays and Torrey’s peaks are both fourteeners and Grays is the highest peak along the continental divide within the US. Kelso Mountain joins Torreys on it’s northeast flank and also offers a great spring descent on it’s north face.

How to Get There

Take the 221 Exit (Bakerville) off I-70. Turn left at E Bakerville Rd/Co Rd 321/Stevens Gulch Rd. Continue to follow Co Rd 321/Stevens Gulch Rd and trailhead for Grays and Torrey's is at the end of the road with plenty of parking and restrooms.
