Awesome pix, Lee!  It looks the big crevasse has filled in some.

When I first tried the link, there was an extra %22 at the end of the link which I had to chop off to get to the good stuff.

Looks like decent coverage up high. They can always move the start of the DH to the top of Pattison. That would be good TV.

Great pics. Thanks!

The terrain up there, during high pressure, is incredible. The playground you have, while maybe not AS accessible as Roger's pass, is pretty awesome. Keep it up Lee.

When I grow up I want to be like you guys... Impressive...  Now I see where Prior gets the name for their "Spearhead" splitboard...
