    Ah I remember the story's about Treman skiing in there during the early 90's.

    Snow Creek, Mt. San Jacinto, California.

    It's a grind. The climb is over 9,500 ft vert. The ski down is over 5,500 ft vert which is a nice reward.

    Sounds interesting. Did he get in there with the MSP guys or something? Apparently patrol used to ski it quite a bit, but always exiting right above the rap.

It's about 3,500' and is an easy approach on the looker's right shoulder (out of frame), then around the back. It goes top to bottom. Oldtimer and I got it twice in one day a couple of years back in picture perfect powder.

    Bumping this awesome thread. Just read this whole damn thing instead of doing work for the last ~40 mins. Some of these are in serious need of pic updates though.

    And god damn, I gotta get after it harder.

    Haha... who is this moron?


    The best couloirs run off the summit.

    Tumbling Peak (600m couloir, ~1000 summit to glacier toe)


    Mt Farnham (biggest mtn in Purcells) -900m couloir. When properly timed, skiable off the summit


    Arras mountain ~700m of couloir before the steep summit face, 1300m summit- flat ground

    Best couloir in north america? nope. But nice to visit the Dolomites just an hour from home in Terrace B.C.

    June 2, 2014. 3300 foot run, 2500 hundo of which between rock walls...twas a blast.

    Of course, in these parts, you gotta pay to play; minor epic on the hike out battling ski-on-pack unfriendly b.c. bush, black flies, mosquitos, horseflies and prit near 30 degree heat.

    The ski down has been about 1500' the past few winters.

    I'll be down that way again next April. Always happy to find a partner. My preferred route is a car shuttle. With a tram ride you only have a 2000' approach over a few mellow miles. The exit will still be a bitch even in epic years tho

    Well Gary, in honor of another Terrace expatriate we both know and love, even though as far as I know the guy hasn't even seen this couloir, we called it simply.... Pineapple Pete. Maybe 'cause the day was so hot and tropical and the cooler faces generally south? Just seemed right.

    In the Northeast I believe the Chimney on Katahdin takes the cake. There are some great lines in the Chic Chocs and in the Presidentials with comparable skiing quality, but the setting of Katahdin is on another level:



    Its the line right of the left-most sub-peak:

    16 mile approach to the hut is worth it. That would be ml242 and Cat in January in the pics. I was across the cirque shooting pics and hunkering down whenever the rain/snow/wind triggered a wave of sluff (over an otherwise bomber snow pack). Skied a nice, but far less impressive line between boulders and huge sheets of water ice with D-Roc and Lynchdogger:

ID:	281432 On our flight out got a good look at the Tiedemann group— and those are some badass couloirs. Arrow on the Combatant I believe The one between Tiedemann and Asperity is longer. Low tide this season

    Always do sober what you said you'd do drunk. That will teach you to keep your mouth shut.
