A few questions first...
What are the lines to the NE (between Dead Dog and the north face routes)? We skied the one closer to the north face last year from around 13,200. Too late of a start on an attempt on the Dog (hiking by 2 am BTW), snow was bullet proof once in the couloir/gully. Maybe we weren't too late after all but the wind was keeping things frozen. It was around 11:30 or so.

Also, the remarkables just pertains to the numerous couloirs that run down that ridge line, ya? What exact lines have been skied? I have spied some hairball ones that I don't expect would have been done.

Also, there is 3 other lines not drawn on the north/northeast face right of the red lines on the map, I believe they are The Emperor or maybe The Diamond or something. Names...3 couloirs, we snagged the middle of the three, and our third member bagged the looker's leftmost. Rode all the way from the summit to the valley bottom..... NICE! They are the obvious lines seen from the highway. Puts a smile on my face every time I drive by knowing I rode that line right there.

Pencil lines and arrows are on all the gullies I've seen tracks in. Pretty good spring training area for Denver ski mountaineers.
