Savage Peak Couloir

The couloir is skiable from summit to bottom (1200+ feet), however, when we skied it we entered the couloir from a side inlet 200' below the summit as a sizable cornice existed at the top.  The upper pitch can reach 50 degrees, but the majority of the couloir is sustained 45.  The bulk of the couloir is fairly shaded from the sun, except for the top 100', so an early start is prudent.  No narrow chokes exist and the majority of the couloir is wide at roughly 30', but it does have a double fall line.

Details

Cold and snowy, but home to some of the best skiers and mountaineers in the world. The peaks are not very high, but then again you don't start very high either. Steep terrain, bushwacking, and technical skills are required. New Hampshire has the White Mountains, and has a great series of backcountry huts and hostels sponsored by the Appalachian Mountain Club, as well as other organizations. New Hampshire is home to Mt. Washington, as well as many other peaks over 4000'.

How to Get There

Go north from massachusets into the white mountains. The farther north you go in New Hampshire, the steeper and taller the peaks get!
