Mt. Eva - Southeast Face

Dave and I set out from Rainbow Road to ski Mt. Eva followed by the option of climbing and skiing Witter Peak's Welcome Couloir if temps and weather allowed. The temps cooperated as we found firm and nice ski conditions above 11500'. However the weather was not cooperating, we ended up hiding out in an old radio communications tower on Mt. Eva's summit, hoping for a break in the weather. Visibility returned briefly to allow for a great decent off Eva's Southeast face, however the Welcome Col had to wait for another day.

Taillon75 –

Ive been to the upper basin via the reservoir route and the chinns lake road route. I prefer the chinns lake approach. Rainbow road was dry and passable up to the chinns lake road "Y"

Solid bang for your buck when you are strapped for time in town. Too bad on Welcome Couloir on Witter. Its a fun one. It can be a bit deceiving though as the top couple hundred feet of the line at times can appear "in" and then you learn the hard way once you are up there.
