Got a little sketched-out skiing the North Face of Static Peak the other day, a first for me as it usually looks rocky and terrifying. Morning clouds and wind kept things firm on aspects that typically get sun at first light. I knew it would be icy, but went for it anyway. (It’s good training…right?) The first and third turns (to the skier’s right) were the scariest, since it was steeper (55) on that side of the line and if my ski edges didn’t hold, I’d be launching over some big cliffs. Luckily, they held…and I scored some great skiing back into Static Draw after cutting way right upon exiting the face.
