Featured Descent

Pinnacle Gully

The route starts with a very short, narrow section passing the pinnacle of rock which gives the gully it's name. From there the gully opens up and allows for some fast and fun skiing at a sustained steep pitch (which I measured at around 45 degrees).

The gully drops you into the Loch Avon basin and the quickest route back is to skin up Coire Domhain before trudging back across the plateau to the car park.

This gully is ideal to link up with another two or three nearby for a full days skiing.

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
