Skiing great lines in the spring is always a welcomed thought in my mind especially after the dangerous conditions that existed all winter; stable, steep couloirs are always an added favorite to my list of things skied. Problem is, they're melting faster than I can find them. Aside from any high North facing chutes (NE lone peak and the Needle) I think every Col. from here to Montana is broken up into various rock outcrops and watery graves.
River crossing #1
Little Pine looks like a graveyard, the waterfall on White Pine is needless to say "high" and Maybird well after crossing the water 5 times in the first half of the col. I figured it was a better day to be climbing or drinking; whichever you prefer.
Don't Fall In!
One small section of uninterrupted snow
Yeah you have to ski on the rocks to call it official.
