Nice view

Not many good photos of this side of Whitney. These chutes make for some great skiing early in the season, just gotta make sure you don't ski off a cliff!

Re: Nice view

I'd imagine there'd be some good (extreme?) skiing- unfortunately, the only stories you hear about snow & this area seem to be when people lose control whilst glissading (coming down from the Mountaineers Route), which has led to too many fatal results...

Re: Nice view

Not really extreme, I've skied these chutes on 3-pins. Just gotta wait until the afternoon to let things soften up.
