"The Eye of the Tiger" (north face) & "Double Chokes" (southeast face)


Jonah and I going back and forth the night before given the forecast of grey and grey stormy pooh.  So we decided to run from the upslope pattern east of the divide and shoot for a zone west of the divide.  The day was excellent the clouds and slight wind kept the snow cold for most of the day, allowing us to ski 4 different lines, 2 from the summit.  Both north facing lines were still cold pow, while the southeast facing lines were soft cream!  A perfect day with a great crew!  Good meeting up with you Gary!  Thanks for sharing "your" goods :)
