Chair: Horstman T-bar or 7th Heaven. Navigate down the easy Blue Line road to the entrance to Couloir Extreme. Recon: the Couloir Extreme and Big Bang are visible from the top of the Jersey Cream chair.Escape: You can easily back out from the entrance of the Couloir into Horstman Glacier. Once you go over to the entrance of Big Bang you’re pretty much committed.
The granddaddy of all extreme runs, the Couloir Extreme was rated among the Top 10 steepest ski runs in a ski area by Skiing Magazine. It’s steep and prolonged and guaranteed to get your heart rate up one way or another. If the main entrance is too tame for you try the higher entrance at skier’s left next time. If the main run is full of bumps try sliding skier’s right over to the entrance to Big Bang. It’s just as steep but less traveled.
