What's in this Area?
One of my favorite lines in the front range with lots of options. You can ski the couloir between the double summits for a nice 40 degree pitch with rock wall on either side.
You can also ski the Northeast face. Not sure on the slope angle but it is a open face with limited exposure.
You can ski the South East face for a more mellow descent (better if you started at Butler Gultch) with amazing terrain and small playful features all the way down.
**Take all necessary avalanche precautions. It is not uncommon to get a lot of wind loading in this area due to its proximity to the divide.**
South American is in the southern hemisphere, so their winter is our summer. Many people will travel there in the warmer months in North America to get some turns in on the big peaks. There is an excess of backcountry skiing routes down there, but they are pretty hard to get to.Chile
