Featured Descent

Colorado » Front Range

Marjorie Bowl

There are a couple of different lines down Marjorie Bowl, but the main line follows the ridge line down the fall line.  The top part of this descent is very steep and often directly under a cornice. Proper terrain management is a must. You want to make sure that you have seen the route and you know that the line goes through. The main lines to skiers left are most often filled in, whereas there are alternate routes to skiers right that do not always get filled in.  The apron of the descent pans out and often the snow will change at the exit where it opens up.  Because these are north facing couliors, they are often shaded and the snow is firmer. There are no trees to hold the snow, so be prepared for variable conditions.
