I'm inclined to skip the couloir given the recent snowfall, but what do I know :)

Sounds like there will be significant late winter storms next week .. next weekend may well be the same (or worse) story. But I'm pretty sure the couloir will still be there later in April and probably into May.

May I suggest a rematch on Saturday May 8th? How 'bout it? Surely the snow will be more consolidated by then.

We also have 4 days of snow coming in this week as well right?


Yes, that's why I was suggesting waiting a while for the snow to consolidate more.

I was hoping to do this and meet other locals (and even try out my new avalanche beacon!) but had a conflict for tomorrow. If it's rescheduled for the 8th I think I can make it.
