Ski Mountaineering - Moderate Difficulty
ALBRIGHT PEAK: A moderate approach with some steep skinning near the top followed by a sustained descent through open powder slopes and gullies. An area favorite. Vertical ascent/descent - 3,200 feet.
SHADOW PEAK: A moderately steep skin up followed by spectacular gladed skiing back to the valley floor. The slightly longer approach keeps the riff-raff away. Vertical ascent/descent - 2,800 feet.
DISAPPOINTMENT PEAK: Rarely skied from its wind-blown summit. We follow the switchbacks up to Amphitheater and Surprise Lakes to approach. From there you can climb up the spectacular Spoon Couloir and ski back down it. From the lakes, numerous descent options include steep, north-facing couloirs, open glades, and steep tree skiing. Vertical ascent/descent - 3,200 to 4,000 feet.
