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.[more]
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.
