Tuning Fork Couloir

Lou Dawson refers to this line as a "Big-ol-strip-o-snow" in this book Colorado's Fourteeners Volume 1.  The slope of this couloir is surprisingly consistent over it's entire length.  It's incredibly wide (100+ feet), and fun line that seems to go on forever.  It's also a very straight forward descent.  What you see is what you get, because in fact, you can see the entire line from the top.  This line may not easily go from the exact summit, so some down climbing over talus may be required.  Both Lou Dawson in his 14ers guide book, and Bill Middlebrook on 14ers.com have excellent write-ups on this route.
