I was the designated slacker for the day. While Jonathan did laps relentlessly, my unstated objective was to not exceed half of his total vert. To accomplish this, I had to sit down between laps,...

The next generation

Very nice!

Looked a lot like my season, except you had more powder, more vert, more steeps and way more high 5's... So actually not much like my season, except that it involved skis and skiing! Great video.

I stayed towards the left side, nothing glaring from a distance. But as bwalker187 mentioned, there are some things starting below the surface.

In Chute, I came across a couple cracks, but more...

I put a lot of miles (and vert ft.) on the original factors with AT blocks installed. I've used them with Fritchi's, G3 Onyx (pin tech) and Dynafit Vertical ST's. I'm a little heavier than you, but...

Great pics and write up!

I'm far from a veteran, but in my experience they can be easier on less than ideal stances... This is because I can engage one pin in my boot and use a ski pole to lift / stabilize the ski while I...

Great day!

I remember reaching the point on the SE snowfield where I had to finally give up skinning - looked down and saw someone by LH trail. Once my skis where on my back, I took one more look:

Excellent!

The only thing missing was a rented pair of "tactical" black Maestrales! Surely you could have lumbered up with such a heavy boot for a mere 1000' ;)

Didn't see them in GG this morning. Went down airplane, back out another chute slightly south. At least one other skier had his eyes open for them as well.

I hope they get found soon!

Cautious, to put it mildly! From some of the best corn I've skied to about the most gripped I've been on skis - within 1/2 mile and 1/2 hour of each other.

That was all our group, four of us. We saw two other skiers at the trailhead, but passed them on the way up. Didn't see them again, must have had another objective.

I wish I had the ability to ski lines like that! But since I don't, I'm happy to read the TR's with pics from the comfort of my couch. Thanks for posting!
