An aesthetic line you can scope from town. A very fun couloir that is not too challenging, except the long approach!
From the Cache Creek trail head in Jackson, follow the dirt road via snowmobile, bike or feet about 4.5 miles. At a fork in the river, ditch your machinery and take the stream bed/gully that branches left. Stay on the south face that is not treed. Follow the drainage about .8 miles until you find a way to ascend the North Facing slope on the opposite side of the drainage. Once you summit the north facing slope continue heading east in a sort gentle ascending meadow. You should be able to see the Gash by now. Ascend another steeper face and that will take you to another meadow and then stay left while heading east to skirt another drainage and that will whip you around to the base of the couloir. Boot up the couloir.
Ski what you ascended.
It borders Wilderness so be heads up about where you go with your bikes and snowmobiles.
