Mt. Edwards- Goatfinger Couloir

Goatfinger Couloir is fairly wide, has a bit of a double fall line, and can reach 50 degrees at the top (although when we skied it, it did not exceed 43 degrees).  Although not an extreme line, it is still a serious undertaking that requires expert ski abilities and advanced snow climbing/mountaineering skills.  It is rated D9-D10.

Goatfinger is a major avalanche path and requires very stable snow to be skied safely.
