What's in this Area?
The east face of Russell is technical and can be tight depending upon snow conditions. It is east facing, which means it gets sun early, and it also involves much steeper lines. The longest descents are from the peak, but they are very committing. Once you are up there, there is no backing out and escape routes are hard to come by should something slide.[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
