2nd Steep Gully

Certainly not for everyone, but I found some very good skiing in the 2nd Steep Gully this morning. Accessing the Gully on the left side is a bit tight and very, very steep with a few rocks. As I rounded a right turn and dropped off the ridge line and into the Gully proper the coverage was fantastic. The snow was very packed, but also very carve-able.  Again this line is not for everyone, but, boy, was it fun today. And the skin out was a pleasant cruise through the woods.

Al wondering if there is any runs in the steep gullies that require a mandatory air to get in or a mandatory air somewhere at a choke point in the line?? Thanks

3 had some earlier in the year. Not sure about now.

1, 2 and 4 have fairly straightforward entrances with no mandatory air. The others are more complex. Always be extremely careful travelling in these areas.

How do these areas compare to some of the extreme terrain at crested butte? Headwall? Teo Bowl? North Face?

I skied Steep Gully one today...this is very steep and extremely dangerous terrain and is not for the faint of heart. Not sure this type of terrain is for everyone but you really have to bring your "A" game and be an high level expert in this terrain. Take notice before entering into this as it no joke.
