Sundial Slab and Lookout Couloirs

Viewed from a pullout along WY 130. From left to right: South Lookout Couloir, Middle Lookout Couloir, and North Lookout Couloir. They apparently are locally known as First Street, Second Street, and Airline Couloirs.

The rock face between the couloirs is known as Sundial Slab. The horizontal line of snow about halfway up it is covering a tundra ledge known as University Avenue.

Re: Hey Bob

If you mean lat/long coordinates, I don't have exact ones, but the topo map I attached gives the approximate locations very well. This view itself is from a pullout a little west of the Libby Flats overlook on the south side of the road, a little east of where the road begins to climb after it passes Bellamy Lake. A trail starts there (goes the other way, though), but my topo maps don't show either the trail or the pullout. The couloirs are really easy to find, though, once you've seen them from the road.

If it helps at all, I can attach some pictures from above in case you were thinking of hiking up and skiing down. It may not be until late next week that I can do that, though, because starting today, I won't have online access for about 8 days; I'll be in Glacier National Park.
