The descent can start from the summit if you're eager to huck your meat off a 10 ft ledge into the couloir. I imagine most people choose to start at the prominent notch just below the summit ridge. Initially the slope is fairly mellow, but rolls over mid way down the couloir for an exciting short pitch of 40ish degree skiing. The snow in the couloir may be kind of chunky from wet slide debris from the SE facing wall above and climbers right of the chute. Not to worry though, the upper portion of the couloir itself is nicely sheltered from early morning sunhit.[more]
A mixture of terrain, but generally more rolling hills. It does get pretty steep, and it gets pretty chilly up there, so be prepared for the worst weather!
How to Get There
Go to New York and head north and west. the mountains make up a significant portion of the state, so you want to make sure you are going to the right place.
