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.[more]
By far the easiest and most popular destination for the powder hungry population of Bozeman. With easy slackcountry access from Bridger Bowl, and remote big lines in Fraser Basin and the Fairy Lake area, the Bridgers are the standard in Southwest Montana. Just please don't traverse across Mundy's bowl, and use extreme caution on Saddle Peak.
How to Get There
Access is found off of the Bridger Canyon Road, follow the road to Bridger Bowl or continue north and take a left at the Fairy Lake Road turnoff.
