This is a huge North facing couloir off Mt. Sopris. It's a huge dangerous terrain trap. There are private property issues which prevent you from exiting directly to the road. Please take the time to do your research and find a legal exit if you ski this line. It will likely involve a long hike to the East around the base of the mountain.
