Mt. Moran

There is still some skiing out there if you want to hike to get to it. Or in this case a boat ride, then a hike, then a spectacular ski down the skillet glacier. The Skillet is a line I have wanted to do since moving here, with 5,833 vertical feet to ski this decent is a huge reward for anyone brave enough to scale the 45 plus degree couloir to the top. Navigating most of the route at night proved to be challenging but there was the moon helping for a little while. The four of us bob, bill, and chase all set off for the summit just before one in the morning. reaching the summit of the skillet shortly after the sun had risen .

Here is some video of the top ski in the couloir. I was lucky enough to get to ski first.
