Stanley Slide Path is exactly that - a long, prominent slide path from the false summit of Stanley Mountain.
Since it crosses the road twice, the CO Dept of Transportation often bombs the route and has even installed a Gazex system at the top. If you're considering skiing this route, be very very careful.
This route is obviously avalanche prone.
Also, much of the time, when there isn't dangerous snow on Stanley Slide Path it is snowless on the lower portion.
This is largely due to it's southern aspect.
Generally the best time to ski Stanley Slide Path is in the spring during a corn cycle.
