“Mt Machebeuf” 12,805′ East Slopes and Y Gully – A Taste of Corn – 3/9/2016

Got up for a morning dose. It’s always a challenge to find some lines that are moderate and offer safe turns in the winter. The East Slopes of “Mt Machebeuf” provide just that; not that we were worried too much about stability this day. We got the little chute up in the alpine and the trees, then had some fun skiing the Y Gully. This was a fun quick outing as I had to get back to Denver to speak at REI that night. No matter how much I prepare I still have some sort of technical snafu when I do a presentation.

Thanks for joining me Jason. We need to ski more than every 2 years. It was fun chasing your skimo speed with all my heavy gear. 3800′ of vert and back to the car by noon.
