Carruther's Shoulder SE Map

This run begins off Carruthers Peak South Eastern Shoulder, actually facing to the south west. It offers nice long consistently pitched slopes for intermediates down towards Club Lake Creek, and offer a nice way to end your day skiing as you head back to Charlotte's Pass. Relatively wide and open, with little to no hazards, these runs are often skiable in June and right throughout the season, also providing some nice relatively steep gullies to the skiers right, and down to the creek. You can pick a line a head down with to no worries, however a huge cornice forms to the eastern flanks of the shoulder, about one and a half kilometres to the East South East of Club Lake, it will be extremely obvious, just stay aware of it. You will most likely be doing this run to return back to Charlotte's Pass, but if you are thinking of returning back to the summit, simply skin back up.
