The descent can start from the summit if you're eager to huck your meat off a 10 ft ledge into the couloir. I imagine most people choose to start at the prominent notch just below the summit ridge. Initially the slope is fairly mellow, but rolls over mid way down the couloir for an exciting short pitch of 40ish degree skiing. The snow in the couloir may be kind of chunky from wet slide debris from the SE facing wall above and climbers right of the chute. Not to worry though, the upper portion of the couloir itself is nicely sheltered from early morning sunhit.[more]
Lobo Overlook is a quick access fun area right off of Wolf Creek Pass and it is snowmobile free. It has many moderates and fun tree skiing. Relatively safe it can afford some great skiing when no where else in Colorado has snow.
How to Get There
Right at the top of the pass on the north side of the Highway is a parking area. Head up the trail/road toward the north to the top of what is called Lobo Overlook which offers great views toward the south and the top of Wolf Creek ski area.
