The Citadel

One of my favorite lines in the front range with lots of options.  You can ski the couloir between the double summits for a nice 40 degree pitch with rock wall on either side. 
You can also ski the Northeast face.  Not sure on the slope angle but it is a open face with limited exposure. 
You can ski the South East face for a more mellow descent (better if you started at Butler Gultch) with amazing terrain and small playful features all the way down. 
**Take all necessary avalanche precautions.  It is not uncommon to get a lot of wind loading in this area due to its proximity to the divide.**

Details

A remote and rugged range that stretches from the south of Big Sky to Hebgen Lake.  Long approaches are required unless you have a snowmobile or the roads melt out, but be warned the majority of the range is in wilderness so don't go past the wilderness boundary with your sled.  A broad range of terrain from big, open faces, to narrow steep couloirs.  Avi conditions can be found at mtavalanche.com

How to Get There

There are several trailheads and access points, with the Taylor Fork Road being the closest to Big Sky.
