Featured Descent

Pinnacle Gully

The route starts with a very short, narrow section passing the pinnacle of rock which gives the gully it's name. From there the gully opens up and allows for some fast and fun skiing at a sustained steep pitch (which I measured at around 45 degrees).

The gully drops you into the Loch Avon basin and the quickest route back is to skin up Coire Domhain before trudging back across the plateau to the car park.

This gully is ideal to link up with another two or three nearby for a full days skiing.

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.
