That's a SICK shot of Sunlight!! =D>

I've had my eyes on Windowmaker and the Moon Couloirs on Jupitor for YEARS.
I've climbed the line to the right of Windowmaker as a booby-prize couple years ago. WM was melted out.
I'd be happy to break trench for ya if we could meet up later this spring for these! :D

Daver, I am always looking to ski/ride with new people and would love to try to get some early May descents in. Like you, I have not done any 14er decsent but have spent a good amount of time splitboarding in the BC and have an avy 1 cert. Drop me a PM when the time gets a little closer and we can make plans!

I'd love to join you on Christo Colouir - skied it last spring and had a great time.

I'm also looking at Snowmass this year during this timeframe, if you have any interest.

I'm always down for riding/skiing with new partners. I'm in Gunni and would be interested in anything within a 3-4hr drive.
