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.

Details

Mountains just west of Boulder. Tons of great Alpine climbing and great ski descents. Generally there is good snow late into the spring, but doesn't really get good until mid-winter.

How to Get There

Go West out of boulder, through Nederland, and continue on. The approaches are a little longer in the spring, because of slightly lower elevations, but they average a couple of hours to the goods.

Area Camping

There is some camping up there, with creeks and streams to fish in, but a lot of it is private property, so be aware of where you are camping.

Area Food

Nederland is going to be your best option. Go to the smokehouse and get some tasty sweet potato fries and a brew!

Area Access

Be on the lookout for private property signs.
