Description

To time it perfectly means waiting for the snowpack to stabilize in spring, but not waiting long enough for the upper section to melt out.

May is likely your best bet.

Approach via the Isabelle Glacier Trail, but instead of climbing to the glacier from the tarn at 11,500', head straight west to the Navajo-Apache cirque.

This is the couloir on looker's right from here.

It's inset, but not all the way to the summit.

Climb and ski!
