Avalanche Bowl, as its name implies, is a dangerous terrain trap that is prone to slides. It faces Northeast and can be reached just after you pass KB Ridge. Exit in a wide drainage to the Northeast and then skin back up to the parking lot or take the long runout exit to Old Pass Road.

Teton Pass Summit

There is an overflow lot where parking is permitted 1 quarter of a mile to the East of the summit of Teton Pass. Sometimes parking is closed at the top of the pass and in those times you'll have to be dropped off or hitchhike.
