What's in this Area?
Goatfinger Couloir is fairly wide, has a bit of a double fall line, and can reach 50 degrees at the top (although when we skied it, it did not exceed 43 degrees). Although not an extreme line, it is still a serious undertaking that requires expert ski abilities and advanced snow climbing/mountaineering skills. It is rated D9-D10.
Goatfinger is a major avalanche path and requires very stable snow to be skied safely.[more]
Just a sweet close area for some good BC skiing if you are in the Mammoth Area.
How to Get There
From Reno drive south on 395 till you go past the Mammoth Highway. Soon after Mammoth you will see McGee Creek Road and find a place to park on the road. The mountain is visible from 395 easily
