Re: How was the trip?

Trip was good n da snow was soggy. Still able to link up ~3K worth of turns. Good stuff!

What a great photo!

How steep is this couloir? And, how is carrying poles while using your splitboard as a snowboard?
Happy climbing and snowboarding,
Marc

Re: What a great photo!

Thanks for your comment! The couloir is sustained 40 degrees, with a short section near the top of 45-50 degrees. I don't have a problem carrying my Whippet during descent and usually have my axe and other trekking pole attached to my pack...unless it is nothing but ice then I descend with my ice ace in hand. Cheers
