Description

I think ski tour has become very popular and is often skied to moguls or at least that is my impression (might be wrong, I haven't done it since 2016...).

However, it is big avalanche terrain with steep start zone.

I think this would be a good one to consider on a low hazard day after a recent small snowfall that hasn't increased the avalanche hazard, assuming no other critical changes such wind, solar, or thermal instabilities.

Temps and solar are of more concern for the approach/up track which traverses under Fairview, which presents a significant terrain trap if you were to get caught in an avalanche...

Hence why my untrack aimed for this subtle bench above the most substantial avalanche crossing.

Pretty certain that the first time I did this route, I went the lower route and was super sketched out the by the steep side hilling above cliffs with a terrible solar crust.

Anyways, I have thrown out this info for your consideration.
