In good weather, ever-expanding vistas, with the spectacular Black Buttes as nearby companions, distinguish this tour. While most mortals will require a two-day trip to reach the summit, even skiing to 7,000 or 8,000 feet will give skiers a long run with grand views and varied terrain. Difficulties: Moderate avalanche potential (high above 9,000 feet); glacier travel; permit / fee area.
