What's in this Area?
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.**
Togwotee Pass is on the continental divide located between Dubois and Moran Junction in Wyoming. North of the highway are the Absaroka Mountains and south of the highway are the Gros Ventre Mountains. The area receives a ton of annual snow, but is a bit remote, with the nearest (big) town being Jackson Hole. Day trips to Togwotee Pass can also be made from Lander.
How to Get There
From Jackson: Drive north from the Town Square on Cache Street. This turns into 26/89/189. Continue north to Moran Junction, then bear right continuing on 26/287. The road will climb up to Togwotee Pass. There are areas to park on the South side of the highway.
From Lander: Drive north out of town on 287. At the junction with 26, continue west on 26/287 until you reach the pass.
