Featured Descent

Colorado » Front Range

The Citadel

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.**

Details

Popular zone south of Bozeman.  Majority of the best skiing with minimal approach is in the Mount Blackmore area.  Skiing ranges from tight trees to alpine lines.  A great place for dawn patrols before going to work in Bozeman.

How to Get There

To access the Mount Blackmore trailhead, drive south from Bozeman on 19th st. until you reach the Hyalite Canyon rd.  Follow the road all the way to Hyalite Reservoir, park at the trailhead before crossing the reservoir's dam.
