Featured Descent

Colorado » Ten Mile Range

NE Couloir or NE face

Depending on snow cover, it may be possible to descend NE off the summit to the open snow field above the NE couloir.  You can also descent east off the summit and traverse skiers left to the snow field above the NE couloir.  When we skied it, the couloir narrowed about half way down the face to about 6 feet (this of course will vary with timing/snow conditions).  Once thru the narrow section, you're basically at the top of the apron, so let 'em rip!!
For extra credit, climb and ski one of the north facing couloirs on North Star Mountain on the way back to the car.

Details

The Cascades are divided into 2 areas, which are the High Cascades and the North Cascades. The High Cascades are volcanos, where as the North Cascades are non-volcanic mountains. The snow is generally heavier than other areas of the country as it is effected by the warm southern winds, the high moisture, and the higher temperatures. Mt. Rainier is one of the most famous peaks in this range.

How to Get There

Go to California, and then head north. the cascades cover a lot of areas, all the way to canada!
