End Peak Pow Wow

What a day we had with a foot of dry powder!. We got our helicopter pick up from the end of the car park at Treble Cone ski field (TC). Six of us in the heli and off for a quick flight to drop us off End Peak. We got dropped on the summit in deep snow, deep enough for the heli to settle alamingly – Alex the pilot even looked worried for a minute!

The heli took off leaving the mountain to just our team. Solitude.

From the summit there are many beautiful bowls to choose from. We skied the obvious lines to the south of the peak in beautiful powder and found easy access back to the summit. After a few runs we headed back to the summit of End Peak to start the journey back to TC. The ridge itself is not easily traversed as it has many gendarmes, however there are multiple options forĀ  ski descentsĀ  and to traverse on both sides of the ridge with moderately angles slopes (20-30 degrees), and easy route finding. However to avoid a cliff band it is recommended to make the fianl descent into the valley below the TC quad from peak 1955, angling to the North, and Not traverse the western slopesbelow pt 1940.
Helicopter takes 6, around $100 per person for a one way ticket. Contact the pilot Alex on 443-7152
