Spoon Couloir, January 2017

Photos from a winter ski ascent of the Spoon Coulour and East Ridge of Disappointment Peak, on January 21, 2017. The climb up was pretty good although the clouds obscured many of the major peaks. The avalanche danger was moderate and skiing down the Spoon the snow was sluffing off into small spindrifts. All in all it was a great climb and ski and I heartily recommend it to anyone.
