This tour is a heroic objective and grants the tenacious skier access to unusual views and skiing on ice-cap glaciers. It is accessible year-round since State Route 20 is always open to the trailhead, and beyond. Low avalanche hazard conditions are essential for this tour. An alternative approach (or escape) can be made via the abandoned Colonial Creek Trail, which follows its namesake, but the brush on this route is known to have made grown men weep. Difficulties: High avalanche potential; routefinding required; glacier travel; permit / fee area.
