6th Gully Map

Gullies 4-6 are not always open and sometimes require a sign out with patrol, observe all signage and gates before entering.


After entering the the gate, look for entrances along the cornices, this may require probing, cautious route finding and pole whacking may be required to safely enter. 6th Gully tends to have a burly cornice, but the upper chute is short, so you can run your speed out on the snowfield below. Lower 6th Gully is much easier to access than it's neighbors and is fairly similar to 2nd Gully. Be sure to watch for rocks at the top. 6th Gully ends just above Turkey Traverse, giving you access to the rest of The Bowl before you return to the lifts.



Serious gradient of 30-38 degrees where a real risk of slipping exists.
