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

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.
