Russell Peak North Shoulder

The North Shoulder is a little bit more mellow, and is often the backup option for people heading up there. You ski almost along the ridge on the north side, back down towards the pumphouse basin.  The north shoulder is generally a little bit sheltered and the snow is a little colder, but it is also windblown.

Details

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.
