West Hogsback Map

This is a popular freeride skiing route which is generally considered to be moderate. It's very remote, it features low exposure (e1) and is typically done between December and April. From a low point of 2.5 km to the maximum altitude of 2.7 km, the route covers 680 m, 0 vertical metres of ascent and 210 vertical metres of descent.


West Hogsback is an easier alternative to The Funnel that doesn't require nearly as demanding of a hike to get to. The entrance is the narrowest part which isn't saying too much. Once past it, the bowl opens up and the skiing is fantastic!



Slopes become slightly steeper at around 25-30 degrees.
