Type III+ - Expert
25 - 50 days / year
More than halfway through The Chuting Gallery. Used to live in Utah but now Boston which has severely curtailed my opportunities. Get to Utah at least once a year plus occasional trips elsewhere. Avoid skiing the East.
Have lots, but my frequent skimo setup is Hagan x-ultra, TLT Mountain5, dynafit speed radical.
I've skied this twice, once with Wasatch Jesus Himself. The top really is as sketch as the books say. A great line though, steep, wide open, typically good snow. Definitely worth the trip.
Rock missiles, 60 degree water ice, man-eating runnels, two chokes, isothermal rotten slush. Pretty much scariest conditions imaginable.
Absolutely loved the line. Steep, great rap. Below-rap choke I straightlined without any problems. Easy and fun dusk patrol outing. Great skiing in a great location. I will be back.
South Face of Lone Peak
Incredible. Went for the NE Couloir and got the South Face as a bonus. Would go back even just for the south face. Snow that late in the season didn't really start until the Second Hamongog, but that was fine. South Face is massive - hugely wide open choose your own adventure skiing an...
Awesome. Booted up from below - it was a snowy powder day and we didn't know how to find it from above. Once you know you know, but we didn't. Little headwall, interesting entrance options, great chute, great finish.
Mt Superior - South Face
Got this many times. Always a spectacular run. Depending on snow, can be a little type II on the way down. The east ridge ascent (the normal way) can be a little sketch in places depending on conditions.
