Ice Mountain Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"Ice Mountain, North and West Apostle, and Huron Peak comprise one of the most spectacular sets of peaks in the entire Sawatch Range. These steep, rugged mountains sit on the dividing line between Chaffee and Gunnison Counties roughly 6.5 miles south of La Plata Peak. Nestled in the center of a range containing many rounded and featureless profiles, these peaks stand out as geographical anomalies.

The skimountaineering potential is abundant and rich here, as the Apostles and Huron offer up numerous steep, technical lines that more closely resemble those of the Elks or San Juans. A good way to get acquainted with the area is to climb and ski the Refrigerator Couloir on Centennial Ice Mountain."
