Alpine Scramble - Mount Ellinor (winter)

Conditioner from Big Creek to Mount Ellinor Winter chute (a.k.a. avalanche chute).

  • Road suitable for all vehicles
  • The lower trailhead is not accessible via vehicle. The road has 75 cm of hard snow on the road. Trail is in good condition.

Specifically a conditioner from big creek to the Winter Chute, with the anticipation of potentially seeing the winter chute avalanche release; we were not disappointed.
