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]
Popular backcountry zone near Big Sky and Moonlight Basin. Contains a variety of terrain from safe, well protected trees, to big alpine descents. Be cautious of avalanche conditions, as most of the best descents will put you through the strainer if caught in a slide. Avi conditions are at mtavalanche.com
How to Get There
Access is typically from the Beehive Basin trailhead. While driving towards Moonlight Basin on Lone Mountain Trail Road, turn right on Crow King road, and follow it to the Beehive Basin Trailhead.
