Silver Couloir

Nearly 3000' of skiing awaits those who put in the effort to climb to the top!!!  The Silver couloir has been regarded by several (Lou Dawson - Wild Snow, Chris Davenport - 50 Classic Ski Descents of N. America) as one of N. America's classic lines.  I have to say I agree.  The couloir is very wide (narrow section is 50 feet??), moderately steep at around 40 degrees, and LONG!!!

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
