Description

Take Chair 4 to Chair 15 and then hike up Covered Wagon Peak.

From here you can go to either side of Covered Wagon Peak and follow the ridge in the southeast direction that leads to peak with a radio tower.

You can ski tour or sidestep to boot-pack.

That peak is Mellisa Coray Peak.

From there, follow the main ridge to the point it starts to go uphill.

At that point drop into the north facing slope.

Ski straight down making steep turns into Sally Alley or cut hard right to hike up the Y couloir of California Chutes.

CAUTION - snow can be very variable and on occasion, blue ice can be found.
