    I'd guess a 14er, but there is snow.

    I was just about to post up my guess, but I'm glad I didn't cause I would have been right!! And then the game would be over, that's no fun.

    Nice work man, that's good shit. Love that area.
    Skiing, whether you're in Wisconsin or the Alps, is a dumbass hick country sport that takes place in the middle of winter on a mountain at the end of a dirt road.

    More clues...

    It's south facing and an obscure line on a prominent peak. Paging Lindahl...would you ski the tiny bit of steep snow on the summit, above the huge cliff to the right..? Let's go back and get that!!!


    And it stays nice and steep for the whole south couloir/face.

    Your skiing in the wrong places on the east coast. Plenty of that on High George and elsewhere. Maybe not the best year but it's there and it's getting refreshed right now. It aint over til its over.

    To the NP - awesome stoke and quality looking line for sure. Sweet. Thanks for the share.

    Won't argue with you on that, I am definitely not skiing the right places. I'm just beginning to explore the NH backcountry, actually... any recommendations on destinations for an expert skier but novice backcountry skier?
