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

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.
