What's in this Area?
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!!![more]
Scotland's winter mountains provide many and varied backcountry routes. Whilst somewhat lacking in vertical it more than makes up for that in variety and the wild nature of both the locations and the weather!
How to Get There
Scotland is situated at the top end of the UK and is readily accessible by road, rail or airport (when not threatened by volcanic ash).
