There are times when bailing is the right option. In fact, sometimes it’s the only option, and that’s okay too. However, on lines like Mt. Shuksan’s Northwest Couloir it can be really tough to decide what call to make, especially once you’re truly amongst it. For Episode 24 of The Fifty, Cody teamed up with Stan Rey and Alexi Godbout to tackle the line he had already tried and bailed from once due to less-than-ideal conditions. This time, the team head up with high expectations, and are forced to reckon with reality once again when it comes time to drop in.
Check out an intimate look at how Cody and co. handle some serious decision making in the mountains as they re-assess conditions halfway down a seriously committing ski run. The mountains are unpredictable, but that’s the game we play!
