Featured Descent

Colorado » Rocky Mountain National Park

Dragon’s Tail Couloir

This is a straight forward descent, make sure you are in the right couloir.  There are cliffs and hazards all around this area.  It is a steep, 50 degree, ski run that can be dangerous.  Timing is important on a ski descent like this one.  The Left side is wider and a little less steep compared to the right side of the Y.  There are safety zones the whole way down.

Details

No specific access considerations although a permit is required to climb Shasta, obtainable from the mountain shop in the town of Shasta. 

Lots of stuff to ski from a small area at the base to long (5-7k ft) descents from the summit on many different aspects.  Just follow the trail of headlamps at 4am up avalanche gulley. 

Watch out for Lemurians

How to Get There

It is the biggest peak around, just follow the signs.
