Report from February 1, 2023
Owen Leeper & I went for an obscure, steep, tight chute that ends in a large cliff yesterday.
Because of its edginess, we’d assumed it hadn’t been skied yet.
We were right.
But it had also avalanched during the storm cycle making the conditions in the chute less than ideal.
The pillows and slopes above it were soft and fun.
The chute itself was icy and firm.
The bottom section of the chute wasn’t terrible but was still pretty tough snow.
I skied it as well as I could and it took all it took just about all I had to link turns and keep it together.
The choke was really tight and I even hung up tip and tails a couple times.
Shoulda brought my smaller skis…
I was pretty stoked after the chute as it’s a classic and it’s gorgeous.
I’ve gotten it in pow before and it’s wildly fun in those conditions.
Hopefully we get another decent storm soon!

Where’s the cliff? Or was that just a classic SnowBrains click-bait?
