Featured Descent

Colorado » Front Range

The Citadel

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.**
