Stettner is the final stretch of the Ford-Stettner route. You enter from the Chevy and ski the steep chute down to a ridge. At the ridge, you will take off your skis and climb up the ridge. Once you reach the top, you will ski the lower section of the couloir onto the Teepee Glacier. You must also hike up the couloir to ski it. This route is very dangerous and exposed, you must be careful and remember to bring gear and a guide.
