Current Creek Bowl Map

Current Creek Bowl is a very wide slope, north of Creent Creek Bench, that falls to the east off the ridge. This area is significantly more avalanche prone than Current Creek Bench directly to its south. This area also has cornices that block many of the would be entrances to the bowl. The wind can play all sorts of games in this area so be aware of its direction and intensity for both avalanche conditions and snow quality.
