Idiot’s Cornice

Idiot's Cornice on Loveland Pass

* Sponsored Ads by Google

A huge cornice forms up on the ridge here at Loveland Pass. It can be over 20 feet tall in some winters, and it drops onto ~40 degree slopes. This cornice can easily break off and slide the entire zone. Take a hint from the name and stay away. You're better off dropping in earlier on the ridge on the Saddle Run which is often called Old Reliable. You may see a lot of tracks below the cornice, but don't blindly follow them. You'd need an intimate familiarity with the local snow-pack to time this one.
