Little Elvis Couloir

Little Elvis Couloir

Approach like you are headed towards the Silver Couloir. Once the route flattens out above treeline you'll want to head right to the line instead of proceeding on towards Silver. You'll see a big rock outcropping as you're coming up that last stretch of the hike, and that's where you can drop in just to the skier's right of it, staying to the skier's right at the entrance. You'll have steep fall-line skiing and then you'll come around a bend and have some cliffs to contend with, which you can avoid by staying extremely skier's right at the bottom. An avalanche in here would likely put you over these cliffs. Don't follow the bottom too far down past the trail which is your exit or you'll have a tough way out. Remember that you're going to want to cut to the right to get out. This is an extremely dangerous line.
