Pretty open bowl with a number of options, there a couple of tinier chutes that are created by tree gullies and rock areas throughout the line. Basically choose your own adventure skiing! After you ski the line head SW through the bottom part of the opening and follow the hill line south. This will meet you back up with the road where you can skin right back up to the hut.[more]
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.
