We are into day 5 of the 6 day, Couloirs to Bars Ski Clinic, and it has again turned out to be another lively one. Maryana is back, showing off her Ukrainian style, cruising down one sweet couloir after another. We have skied Italian Corn snow, dug deep snow pits in search of faceted snow crystals, and more recently, bagged Mt.Fort back-side and Mt.Gele first tracks. It was so incredibly fat off the Mt.Fort, with my pole disappearing up to the handle on the second turn. Valery is getting his mind around the airy climbs and traverses, and is looking more solid skiing the steeps on his K2 Coombas.
It looks like it’s going to dump on the South side as we get some Foehn tomorrow. Then cool Bise and corn snow for next week. C’mon Spring!!!
