Well now that the February issue of Backcountry Magazine, with that Hidden Couloir piece, is on the shelves, I figure I will add some fuel to the stoke. Skiing the Hidden Couloir in 2005 was a great achievement for Reeders and I, and it felt great to bag the steep, technical descent. Here is a photo TR of the trip.
