The main descent is straight down the chute through two hallways, which are not super narrow. There is a skiers right option if the main line has already been hit. It is a great route but can have serious avalanche hazards and potential to pin a person into a rock or drag over a cliff. Pay attention to the convexity on the top, this route can get wind loaded. The exit is a right turn down the first creek to the parking lot.[more]
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.
