    best couloir in north america?

    criteria: more than 1500' of vert, a sustained pitch of at least 40 degrees and a time commitment of no more than 3 days.

    baffin island is definitely world class but pretty much requires at least a month. lets say the line has to be three days tops round trip from the nearest place you can buy a bottle of whiskey...

    you should break it up between lift accessible, day trip accessible, and multi-day tour accessible.

    Superstar couloir, I've gazed down on that before, it looks like you make one turn and then fall off a 1,000 foot cliff. Awesome.


    The best couloir in north america has to be the 2nd chute at A-Basin.
