Start of Tour
This tour requires a car shuttle so have one car at the hairpin turn and start the trip at the Blue Lake Trailhead. From the Blue lake Trailhead, climb Southeast toward the Cornice Peak Col. The col has open skiing if you choose to have a short day and descend back to Highway 20. Just below the last pitch to reach the notch, you’ll notice a steep couloir to the left that is the entry to Spire Gulley, a short cut for the tour that takes you east adjacent to the Spires and down steep run to the hairpin turn.
