Apache Peak

Once you reach the ridge you can continue to the summit or head straight down the Couloir.  This is a GREAT line for sneaking in some turns late in the season.  The route faces North and holds snow similar to Lamb Slide Couloir on Long's Peak but without turing to ice.

Details

This is a bowl that is tucked back in off the North Face of Lobo Overlook.  It previously has had large avalanche implications as it is a perfect angle.  Lately it is so skier compacted on a regular basis that I do not foresee much slide potential but I would still apply your Avy eyes.

How to Get There

Head back on the Lobo lookout road until you see the bowl pictured.  Hike either up the left side ridge which is steeper and more direct or follow the road which switchbacks on the right side.  Ski down the powder and repeat.
