Just a little PSA, as I saw this on Turkey Day. The East Face and Ford Couloir of the Grand Teton slid and sent debris all the way to the meadows. The Cave Couloir also slid.

From skiing the Amora Vida Couloir on the South Teton the day before, I [...]
Reed Finlay skis in front of Table Mountain. Although our snowpack isn’t the greatest up here in the Tetons so far this year, there is still a lot of great skiing to be had and when the bigger lines aren’t filled in yet, it’s better to focus on obscure runs and long tours. It’s probably [...]
