Colorado » Front Range

Apache Peak

Once you reach the ridge you can continue to the summit or head straight down the Couloir.  This is a GREAT line for sneaking in some turns late in the season.  The route faces North and holds snow similar to Lamb Slide Couloir on Long's Peak but without turing to ice.
