Lou Dawson refers to this line as a "Big-ol-strip-o-snow" in this book Colorado's Fourteeners Volume 1. The slope of this couloir is surprisingly consistent over it's entire length. It's incredibly wide (100+ feet), and fun line that seems to go on forever. It's also a very straight forward descent. What you see is what you get, because in fact, you can see the entire line from the top. This line may not easily go from the exact summit, so some down climbing over talus may be required. Both Lou Dawson in his 14ers guide book, and Bill Middlebrook on 14ers.com have excellent write-ups on this route.[more]
There are some rolling hills, but not a lot of steep lines in massachusetts. There is more touring, and some lower angle stuff. There are a couple of older ski areas in western and central mass. It is generally not very crowded, and you might run into a couple of snowshoers.
How to Get There
Massachusetts is located in New England, surrounded by New York, New Hampshire, Vermont, Connecticut, and Rhode Island. The Mass Pike and Route 2 head East/West, and 95, 395, and 495 run N/South. Some of the approaches are longer than others, depending on where you are going.
