Cannon Mountain: Cannon Couloir Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"Just like a number of tours in this book, skiing the Cannon Couloir shows you another half-dozen objectives to add to your tick list. From the approach route, the couloir is so obvious and in-your-face that you cannot help but want to ski it. It is a must-do day trip for every local skier. Icy conditions earlier in the day may require ski mountaineering equipment, such as an ice ax and boot crampons.

Follow Eightmile Road (Forest Service Road 7601) 2.5 miles to 3000 feet. You will have ample opportunity to look straight up the Cannon Couloir, as well as the upper approach to the top of the couloir. Find a way across Eightmile Creek, and then climb upward and left to gain the slope and ridge immediately west of the couloir, reaching a bench at 6500 feet. Continue up the ridge to the couloir entrance just above 7800 feet. The Cannon Couloir descends the obvious slanting gash on Cannon Mountain’s northeast face."
