The picture you reference is called Jones Brothers Chutes and is on a ridge between Butler Gulch and Jones Pass just up from Berthoud Falls. 80's and 90's are up Current Creek if I remember right on Berthoud Pass. These are very visible lines as you are driving back from Winter Park toward the front range just before you go over the pass. Here is another shot of the 80's. It is easy to do shuttles on this by getting 3-4 people dropped off toward the top of the pass and then traversing over to the top of these chutes. We can do a lap an hour or so.North Arapahoe looking so temping to ski but off limits. Come on boulder county.Toll

Mike, that's Sawtooth.
It sits at the western end of the St Vrain drainage, on the north side just east of Ogallala.

Ah yes. I did not think I was right but either way it looks like an interesting ski off the top. I have actually been below it going up the camp dick trail on my bike to the wilderness area.

Okay, I was wrong!
It is Sawtooth, but everything I said about it describes Elk Tooth. Ooops!

Sawtooth is actually South of Ogallala along the divide, just south of Buchanan pass.
Yes, you see it when you are heading west up the Middle Saint Vrain from Peaceful Valley/Camp Dick.

Would this be Elk Tooth? Looks very cool back there. Taken from Realization Point above flagstaff today.

Yeah, Ogallala on the left and Elk Tooth on the right.

Here's the beginning of a TR involving those two peaks:

got out to Brainard Lake a couple of times the last week. Skied the short steep couloir above the lake to the southwest. Been thinking about doing it for years it was quite fun. We skied in last week but took bikes yesterday. Went for the crooked couloir on Audobon but the high winds and blowing snow got to us and we did not summit. So beautiful back there though. Going to miss this place.
