I got out with Penn Newhard and Greg Williams from Backbone Media this past Tuesday and even though the temps weren’t that cold, the snow still set up nice to make for fast spring time travel. We toured up to the Teewinot/Mt Owen Plateau and skied the Southwest Couloir of Teewinot. Here are some pictures from the trip. Ciao for now!
