Devil's Castle Couloir  Map

This line is almost better to look at than to actually ski. It is rarely open and rarely has enough snow to make it worth your while. It is the obvious couloir that extends above the Castle Apron starting from the top saddle of the Devil's Castle. The line is very steep, technical and usually quite complex - look to this line for an incredible challenge and likely suffer fest. This line only fills in during big snow years and usually has a cornice on top. It is for experts only - it is obvious why when you see it.
