Colter's Crawl Map

Colter's is a great run on almost any day. It has a nice, wide open upper section, then cruxes down for a couple hundred feet before opening up into the lower apron. Head South past the Nose and Joe's from the Bridger hike. Drop in from here all the way to the D Route gate. This upper part can be kind of dicey around the rocks, best to stay away from them until very late in the year, or after a couple dense snow storms. You will have a few hundred feet of good fall line skiing before it starts to narrow. It cruxes down to about 15ft wide a t the tightest, but you can usually make nice consistent hop turns the whole way. After the crux, it soon meets up with the run outs of Green Jeans and Nun's- look up to avoid anyone coming down from above. The rest of the run is wide open turns on a large apron. The upper and middle parts of Colter's will almost always have high quality snow but the apron can get sun affected, so ski accordingly.



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