FATMAP difficulty grade
Black Butte Gully is by far the most striking gully in the Lakesides Gullies zone of the Deadwood Roundtop backcountry ski area.
What makes this run stand out is skiing right next to the jagged walls of Black Butte.
The run is extremely isolated and you get an incredible view of Caples lake.
The pitch is very intermediate and the run has no sudden pitch changes.
The trees however do get a bit dense towards the bottom.
This run is also situated at a slightly lower elevation which could impact the snow quality.
On a good day however, this is a fantastic option!
