While skiing in Glacier Gulch yesterday, I found myself staring up at and day-dreaming about skiing the Hossack-MacGowan route on the north side of the Grand Teton.   I think it has been about 14 years since the route had its last (2nd) descent, and although we have had some really phat snow years since then, there still hasn’t been another descent of what has to be the most proud line in the whole Teton Range…if not the entire country.

Occasionally, I think to myself that I’d like to give it a try some day. But, I also hear a lot of other people say the same thing, only to get the smack down when they really get an up-close and personal view of the route. For now…I think I will keep this one on my “B-List”.
