Description

Take Chair 4 to Chair 15 and then hike up to Melissa Coray Peak, then to continue to Peak 9795.

Skins can be helpful.

Two entrances from the summit of Peak 9795 create a Y Couloir that is decently pitched.

The snow can be extremely variable due to its western exposure.

Skier's right side tends to firm up from the melt-freeze cycle from direct sun exposure.

Stay to the skier's left to find better snow on the descent.

From here you can ski down a mellow slope area down to Emigrant Lake.
