Sneffels in the San Juans is a gem, You can ski the lavendar couloir back into Yankee boy basin--- or if your bad- ass ski what locals call the TRILOGY-- into blue lakes basin(shuttle is needed) This is only for the Sik dawgs, Three consecutive couloirs about 5-6ooo ft vertical total. Certainly the most impressive line I have seen in CO. You can see it plain as day from the viewpoint on the Dallas divide. It looks like a dog legging white stripe coming off just to the lookers left of the impressive peak. Mountaineering skills and equipment required. I have attempted twice and got shut out by weather twice. have any of you done this I am getting mixed reviews on the Traverses inbetweeen shots? I have not found this line in any guide books.
