Details

The route will ascend one of the couloirs above Blue Lake, either Crooked Couloir or one of the Coney Couloirs, and go back down. We will not attempt to summit Mt Audubon. These are two prominent snow couloirs above Blue Lake, on south face of Mt Audubon. Options are to ski, snowboard, glissade and/or downclimb the route. A moderate, non-technical (i.e. unroped) snow route, quite accessible to anyone with adequate snow experience.



Snow conditions will be evaluated that day, and an alternate route will be selected if the couloirs are not safe.
