Mt. Hope, Hopeful Couloir Skiing 5/26/2013 -

Powered by SmugMug Log In

The approach to Mt. Hope is not trivial. A good trail starts steep right out of the parking lot, gaining nearly 2700' in just 2.5mi to reach Hope Pass at 12,540'. From there, some off-trail talus hiking along the east ridge leads to the summit. We stopped just short of the pass to rest and fuel up; Bart points out the route.
