Hah, yea I dunno about that...looks more like something that the Couloirman would do...he's couloir than I are. I think the likely rappel below what's pictured would make this an interesting enough adventure, for me.

Glad to see this thread getting some action and not just going back to bed. How bout you Brian, gots any rad pictures of tasty lines you've done/want to do?

Terminal Cancer does look like a sweet ski. Maybe we can get a tow in http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UphDhoRY8pg. Big Eyes looks cool too. Tight choke. Thought you had already skied it. I'm typing this from the Fraser library with a direct view of Byers Peak. Looks worthwhile for something close to home.

Can I play too? Coverage wasn't too great in January, and it doesn't start from the true summit of Redcloud, but it got me thinking. I hope it's called "Toilet Bowl."

BenFromtheEast - Toilet Bowl is aptly named cause that looks like a whole lotta s**t up top.

Byers has been caked since early January. Anyone know what the approach is like this time of year?

Anyone have information/pics on the east couloir off Mt. Richthofen?

This time of year Byers has about a six-mile approach up old logging roads. The main bowl has slid once already this winter.

There usually are a few weeks in May and sometimes June when you can mountain bike the approach. Here's somebody else's video:

Approach seems like a lot of effort since you can't take a sled up the road. From what I hear. "Just a wee bit" of activity up there 2 weeks ago (Notice the slides that even wrapped into the other bowl) (couldn't post the full-size version, there's a thread on TGR in the slide zone if you want to see a bigger photo)

Am I allowed to say that I love this thread, even though I started it? 'Cause I do.

You are definitely allowed. Dissapointed that you didn't bring a photo of a sweet ski line with you though. I'm sure you have lots of them!

Saw the snake got skied the other day...all aboard the send train, choo-choooo! Looks like a blast. I'd bet that lots of skiers have that one on their hit list.

Here's another I had the chance to gawk at the other day, looks like a worthwhile endeavor
