A less frequented route, though often holding good snow due to it’s northerly aspect. The Black Prince Col is located in Purple Knob area, just south of Hero’s Knob.
Notables: kananaskis, alpine, steep, yo-yo
Take the same route up the Purple drainage as for the Heros Knob loop. Rather than heading North once gaining the bench, veer left. Black Prince Col will be clearly visible from here. Set an up-track directly up the slope and yo-yo, or head over to Hero’s once your done for a lap down Sweet Sixteen.
