Description

Now you're talking about some of the most extreme skiing Taos has, and most people have never heard of it. This line requires traversing a narrow spine then it's a couloir plunge into the bottom of Dog Leg and Hunziker Main. This is serious stuff here so never go alone and take an informed guide with you if you absolutely insist on going. Don't be surprised if it's roped off even on the best days.
