Featured Descent

Colorado » Ten Mile Range

NE Couloir or NE face

Depending on snow cover, it may be possible to descend NE off the summit to the open snow field above the NE couloir.  You can also descent east off the summit and traverse skiers left to the snow field above the NE couloir.  When we skied it, the couloir narrowed about half way down the face to about 6 feet (this of course will vary with timing/snow conditions).  Once thru the narrow section, you're basically at the top of the apron, so let 'em rip!!
For extra credit, climb and ski one of the north facing couloirs on North Star Mountain on the way back to the car.

Details

Silverton Area has some of the most consistent snow in Colorado. They get it early, and they get it late. Storms love to hit the Silverton/Red Mountain Pass Area. The resort itself is almost a backcountry experience, as they recommend going guided. They also have helicopter access, and unguided days at the resort...........

How to Get There

Western Slope. It is a long drive from the denver area, but once you are in the area, there is relatively easy access to the larger peaks.
