A fairly honest look at what it's like to "Ski" lines early or even pre season.
Nov. 11, 2010 there was about as much snow as some early Octobers but Martin Lefebvre and I headed up the Aemmer Couloir on Mt. Temple anyway. Here's the story from Biglines.com Read More
We love skiing Rockies' couloirs! The last couple winters there have had mid-winter windows of great conditions for getting up and down some fun chutes. February 2015 was a good window for sure and lots of people got out skied lines. Here are some pics and a video of shredding couloirs with Chris Rubens around Boom Lake and Taylor Lake from then.

It was around May 15, 2012 when I limped back into the snow safety office at Sunshine Village and had a chance to catch up with Kevin. After a quick hey hows it going, the next words out of my mouth were, “if you ever wanna go to Clemenceau, I'm in!” Without even blinking Kevin said “lets do it!” He immediately hopped on the computer and started looking at weather and flight costs. My jaw dropped and my knee started to swell up upon hearing his response. “Umm... I was thinking more about next year” But it was already too late to turn back. After hearing of the amazing solo descent of the North Face of Bryce we felt like there was a bit of mad rush for the classic un-skied faces of the Rockies. The North Face of Clemenceau had been on Kevin and Eric's wish list for a few years. It was a fat snowpack year in the Rockies, things were getting done and Kevin didn't want to get scooped on this one!
