Wray Landon styles the Sliver.

morning-light-in-garnet-canyonAfter an insane powder run down the Banana Couloir on Mount Prospectors last week, I headed with some friends up to the Sliver on Nez Perce over the weekend. The line was all sloughed out with piles of dense snow down the chris-nears-the-top-of-the-slivermiddle of the whole couloir, and crusty near the top from the dripping water and snow coming from the steep walls that overhang the shot on the skiers left side. After lining up the cruxy entrance, I slid into the couloir alright…shaving lots of speed with a hard right turn, but somehow got twisted up after that and managed to face plant hard. Glad I was wearing my helmet, but I had a hard time getting back on my game for the rest of the run.

Here’s the POV footage from the wreck.
