What Big Eyes You Have is the name that has been given to a near 2,000 foot long couloir on the north side of Red Mountain in the Gore Range outside of Silverthorne, Colorado. From a distance it is quite an aesthetic line, but up close its nothing to write home about from a climber's perspective. To me it felt like just another 40 degree snow climb, which by the way doesn't even lead to the top of Red Mountain. The couloir ends at the minor, unranked, unofficially named bump "East East Red" and is separated from the real deal by a technical ridge. This one's probably best left to the skiers unless you've already climbed everything else and need something to occupy yourself with.
