    April 8th...winter snow conditions and a longish sled ride to access it.

    I can't really see boot pack tracks in your photo? Did you go up the hiking trail? Must've been quite the trip skiing the rollover at the top having not gone up it first?

    Tallboy Couloir, great shot of me almost tomahawking the first turn after the choke. Not a place you'd really wanna fall and glad I recovered.

    High traffic these days- every attempt I couldn’t ski it. To many Mec”ers trying to side slip down it realizing its way over there skills. Skied climbers left- possible double hole in wall with ropes and ninja skills. We just went fall-line, drank brews at bottom and contemplated calling rescue on the group stuck in the classic that clearly had little ski skills....

    Went for the waterman twice. Both times there was a big ice patch at the top. Ended up skiing the Y couloir the first time and north col the next time. Waterman(not sure if thats the spelling)i think is the most aesthetic and remains on the list. Name:  FB_IMG_1592205499875.jpeg

    Haven't skied any of 'em, but damn, check out this lineup. Mt. Baxter (southern Sierra), north side, which I admired during a crest tour that came out via Sawmill Pass.

    Purdy. Looks like you’d need to camp there for a week to get in as much skiing as you want

    Leuthold's, such an aesthetic line. Surrounded by massive rime formations on the way up, a hell of a view from the top for sunrise, tight choke, onto 1500ft+ of powdery apron bliss

    Nah we Bootpacked the whole thing. Would be sweet to get it in full winter conditions but was nice to be able to drive right in. scramble route looked honestly more difficult to get up then just kicking steps in a straight line for a couple hours.

    best couloir in north america?

    This pic of Steve Romeo in the chouinard couloir is one of my favorites of all time. Look at that slab he triggered on lookers right of the choke

    tetonat.com is a lifetime of stoke if you’re ever looking for a reason to procrastinate. RIP Steve, thanks for the pics and the motivation!

    best couloir in north america?

    Repeating the Morning coffee routine. Red sentinel couloir, great N facing pow line.

    Approaching from the backside, East hourglass couloir is the obvious line right of the summit in the background.
