Featured Descent

Arizona » Kachina Peaks

Monti Vista Chute

From the top of Agassiz the line descends to down the high alpine ridge to the east.  Just short of the saddle it descends to the skiers right towards the south and town.  This route then followes the avalanche path and drainage for long beautiful run.  At the bottom you begin meandering right towards the Leroux fire scar.  Once you hit Freidlein Prairie Road this is the end of the run and you follow the road to skiers right back to snowbowl road. This is a long run, make sure you carry a map.  It flattens out at the end and you would like to get back to snowbowl road so you can get a ride back up to the ski area.  Please also be advised that this is the ski run where the only Arizona avalanche fatality occured, be smart.

Details

Both times I skied here in the summer, I started from the Sunrise Lodge parking lot, which is on the Northeast part of the mountain. You can skin up just about any of the trails from here, but the skiing is better if you stick to the ridge line on looker's left. Continue along the ridge all the way to the Summit (9065'). From here the best lines in the summer are straight down the steeper, north face. As you reach the bottom of the main bowl start working your way back to skier's right so you don't miss the trail back to the Sunrise Lodge. There are numerous other routes and lines here, it all depends on preference, weather, snowpack, etc.

How to Get There

Mt. Bachelor sits just 25 minutes west of Bend, Oregon, on Co. Hwy. 48 (Cascade Lakes Hwy.). Make sure at the end of your day to head into Bend to get some killer beer at 10 Barrel, Silver Moon, or any of the other awesome breweries in town
