Gibbs Creek

*Amazon Affiliate Links

The headwall above Gibbs Creek is an incredibly steep and dangerous NE-N-NW face. It's known for big avalanches and is threatened in spots by big cliffs and cornices. Unlike the other runs at Wolf Creek Pass, there is no easy exit from Gibbs Creek. Following the drainage down lower would put you in the middle of nowhere. Typically people who ski this area skin back up the ridge to where they started, which is not an easy task. Do not drop into this zone during times of avalanche danger and do not ski it without an exit strategy. It would be a very long and difficult trek (somewhere around 5 miles) down to Big Meadows Reservoir and out if you didn't climb back up to the ridge.
