Access from Reno, NV:
US 395 south
Sherwin Creek Road southwest to snow closure
Drive Time: ~2:40

Bloody Mountain:
I skinned up Sherwin Creek Road, then the 4WD road to Laurel Lakes, then up to the base of Bloody Couloir of Bloody Mountain. I cramponed up the couloir to the summit. I measured the slope angle at 45 degrees. I skied the couloir finding powder for the first 200’ then a solid wind crust for the remainder. The ski down Laurel Lakes drainage was enjoyable on corn.
Elevation: ~5400’
Distance: ~14 miles
Time: ~6:50
