Snoopy’s Backside Couloir

The descent can start from the summit if you're eager to huck your meat off a 10 ft ledge into the couloir.  I imagine most people choose to start at the prominent notch just below the summit ridge.  Initially the slope is fairly mellow, but rolls over mid way down the couloir for an exciting short pitch of 40ish degree skiing.  The snow in the couloir may be kind of chunky from wet slide debris from the SE facing wall above and climbers right of the chute.  Not to worry though, the upper portion of the couloir itself is nicely sheltered from early morning sunhit.

Details

Alaska is known for its great snow, huge lines, and amazing terrain, but it is also generally quiet, not very crowded, and has a ton to offer. Some of the best helicopter accessed backcountry is in Alaska, as well as touring options

How to Get There

Get on a plane and head towards the ocean, then turn around and go up into the hills! There is some great skiing just outside of major cities
