For more info Contact


TH is the top of Hoosier Pass near Alma, CO. We will skin up the standard East Ridge of North Star Mountain for 2,300'. Depending on conditions we will leave skis at the top of the ridge and tag the summit. We will ski down the Butterknife Couloir to the bottom of the valley and traverse back to the highway with 300' elevation gain to get back to the cars. RT should be 5 miles, more if we tag the summit. Snow, weather and avalanche conditions may require us to ski another mountain. Leader is AIARE PRO 1 certified.


Recent (within the past 5 years) completion of Avalanche Level 1 or AIARE Companion Rescue avalanche training is required.

Gear required includes a beacon, probe, shovel, AT Skis/Tele/Splitboard with skins. You must be a capable blue/black skier, the couloir is a 25% slope, similar to an easier blue resort run (less steep than Cristo Couloir).

Contact the leader with your experience to signup.
