Hey guys, I was wondering if its at all possible to ski cloud peak in wyoming? and would it be worth the the hike? maybe some other peak in the big horns that is more worthy? Luke Deurmier

It would be possible, but not particularly desirable. The top of the peak would be potentially windblown to nothing and the east side is cliff. Not really worth the 10+ mile slog to get there.

Bighorn Peak has a bad ass couloir that has been skied. (summitpost.org/bighorn-couloir...

Plenty of backcountry to be had, but not a ton of stellar areas that don't have epic approaches. I'd continue on to the Beartooths.

Darton is an option. As with Cloud Peak, more for the peak bagging than the skiing. A long approach with a windblown top. Jason Todd
