4-Hour Couloir Survival Story

You may remember last year, when Jimmy Chin, Jeremy Jones and Xavier de la Rue were in town trying to get some footage for the movie Further.  Well, conditions weren’t the best for those guys (if I recall, it was during a warm spell, and unfortunately, Jimmy got caught in quite a long avalanche skiing the south facing, 4-Hour Coulior on Shadow Peak. (Original post on TetonAT about it, here.)

I always wondered when I would see some footage from this event, because you know the cameras had to be rolling. Well, here’s an avalanche awareness video that contains some clips from that day. I’m sure there’s more video out there, and I assume it will be included in the Further video.

    Steve, a minor raspectful clarification: in photo; Shadow Peak is off screen to the left, west. The point marked as “Shadow Pk” is approx 10,160 ft. true Shadow Pk. is 10725 ft.

    yeah, thanks g-dub. i was thinking that as i posted this, but figured since most folks ski from the point i labeled and say they are skiing shadow peak, it wouldn’t be too erroneous for this post.
