Quality line regardless


I noticed the similarity as well. There is something about those big triangle faces that is oh so appealing.

Scotty's couloir in Fairy Meadows, BC. Three glacier crossings and then a perfectly cut couloir as a reward. Not a triangle face but worth the price of admission for sure. This one called me for 8 years after I saw a photo for the first time. A classic.

That's a skier from our crew in the middle, for scale.

Edit: I should mention, Andrew "Dub" Whiteford is the skier in that photo and if you haven't seen his video edits they are worth a moment, for added inspiration. He is a great skier, person, and video junkie.

Revival!!!!!!!

The great white north is looking awfully good for not-even-mid-October.

I'm all a-twitter in gumby excitement for this line:

And once filled in, another one for some jollys.

I think it's the eastern ridge of Mt. Richthofen.

The picture was taken from Thunder Pass (yesterday) looking SW.

March Bump

It's looking like I won't need to go very far to find what I'm looking for this season. A trip or four to some non-adjacent zones will almost certainly happen as well.

This little ditty has been climbing the to-do in recent years. I think it may prove an excellent compliment to a Skister snow camping foray.

Yeah, I'm pretty excited...

Here's a picture of a picture of something I hope fills in this year:
