This classic 4 day ski traverse through the North Cascades circumnavigates the iconic Forbidden Peak. Crossing at least 5 different glaciers and summiting Eldorado Peak this trip is the epitome of ski mountaineering. With fall line riding advanced to expert splitboarders will also enjoy this one.

Our first day ascends through the forest to the subalpine toe of the Queen Sabe Glacier where expansive views of the North Cascades and Johannesburg Mountain spill out below us. The 2nd day starts out with a short climb up Sharkfin Col and rappel down onto the Boston Glacier. A pleasant glacier ski down and gradual climb back up to the Forbidden Col grants us access to a highlight ski descent down the Forbidden Glacier to Moraine Lake and our camp for the night. Day 3 starts off by ascending up another Cascades behemoth, the Inspiration Glacier. Here we have the option of getting up camp at the Tepee Towers and completing the original route by riding the McAllister Glacier loop. Or for a 3 day option we continue onto the summit of Eldorado Peak and ski the East Face, one of the 50 classic ski descents of North America. Wether its on day 3 or 4 we ski from Eldorado Peak down for 5,000' to the climbers trail and back to the trailhead.
