Spring Couloir Skiing

A few weeks ago (May17), I skied DogLeg Couloir near A Basin Ski Resort with a friend from the UK.  We skied 8 inches of fresh powder on top of melt freeze snowpack. This was during that epic 3 weeks straight of rain in the valley and snow in the mountains. The conditions were quite good with the exception of some old wet slides underneath which made you a little edgy to get too much speed. All in all, a great day. With June around the corner and still tons of snow up high, the spring backcountry ski season is still very much in prime shape!
