Grizzly Gulch Map

This is a popular ski touring route which is generally considered to be moderate. It's very remote, it features medium exposure (e2) and is typically done in an unknown time of year. From a low point of 2.8 km to the maximum altitude of 2.9 km, the route covers 686 m, 127 vertical metres of ascent and 1 vertical metres of descent. You'll need skins to complete it safely.


This is a very popular backcountry area. Skin up the summer road and back to twin lakes pass. You will see lots of mini bowls and great tree skiing. Be very mindful of people below you, and avoid the obvious terrain traps.



Slopes become slightly steeper at around 25-30 degrees.
