Boot and Ski  Sucess!

With Craig. Late season in a bad snow year but we still were able to ski almost all the way down to 10,000. The lower part of the route had a mix of dirty snow, rocks and sun cups but the upper part was very enjoyable. Will have to come back for even better conditions, but this was a really fun climb and ski regardless.

Great ski down after booting up!  Sucess!

Great boot up and ski down Silver Couloir. I was glad to have crampons for the ascent. It was icy in the morning and better skiing in the early afternoon.

Here's a short video:

Classic  Sucess!

Climbed and skied this chute in excellent conditions; powder up higher and some corn down low. Super fun line.

Silver Couloir - East Slope Loop  Sucess!

Marc and I ascended Buff Mt. 'mostly' via the Silver Couloir. We got distracted by a surprisingly fun and narrow hourglass entrance to a side couloir a third of the way up the main route. Exited via a class four traverse on some sketchy rock. An earlier and safer exit was available but curiosity got the best of us (me). Took a snooze on the summit and had a long glissade down the East Slope.
