Featured Descent

Colorado » Glenwood Springs / Carbondale

William’s Peak North Face Proper

From the summit, cut through the trees to return to the second headwall.  At the bottom of the first snowfield/meadow, pick your way through the trees staying left (most people take the gully and cut left) to another prominent meadow.  One more group of aspens, and the third meadow becomes apparent.  Just beyond the trees at the bottom of the third meadow is the road where you started.

Numerous variations exist into some rather tight trees, but this route is well-traveled enough that you can get pow turns in the meadows and follow tracks through the trees to the next mostly-unskied meadow.

If you are skiing early season, keep in mind there is a lot of deadfall and broken leg potential lurking under shallow snow, especially in the aspen trees.

Details

On the coast, so for the most par it is pretty tame, but northwestern CT has a couple of rolling hills. There is a bit of nordic skiing there, and generally when the snow comes in, it stick around for a while, unless you are right on the water.

How to Get There

Go to New England and head south towards the water. Approaches are shorter for XC skiing, and most people would say that CT is not a destination for backcountry skiing.
