This is a moderate climb but due to the southern aspect and the lower elevation, the snow is often melted out and sunbaked towards the bottom of the trail. Not a very good place for spring skiing once it gets warm. This canyon is access to a lot of other terrain back in the drainage including couloirs and other steeper terrain.[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.
