Located outside of Valdez along Richardson Highway, Crudbusters offers some big lines with a quick approach favored by the locals. Park along the pipeline access road and ski along the pipeline right-of -way heading towards the base of the ridge. Ascend a small spine enroute to a bench before finishing up the rocky ridge to about 5000’. Enjoy the descent following your ascent tracks or find various other lines on Crudbuster’s 25-40 degree slopes. If desired, other options exist on the northwest aspects of Peak 6140 on excellent couloirs.
