HAHA. It is funny to compare our styles, so very contrasting. Jim is so solid making all those turns. He makes it look so effortless, me on the other hand, well I guess I am just to lazy... Wink

So nice - thanks.  What is the beautiful face that looks like a lower angle version of the Skillet Glacier on Mt Moran (Tetons) in the background on the video shot from the top of Vesper?

Petey, that's the north face of Morning Star. Jeff and I skied most of it in 2008. We were looking longingly at it on Sunday thinking how sweet it would be to drop into it with good powder, but we also thought how much it would suck if a sluff on the top steepest (about the same as Skillet I think) slope carried you over the cliffs.

Awesome! What incredible snow conditions for April - I love WA state. For comparison you needed a video of somebody doing it CO style too. (jacket with fur lining, knees glued together, and asking which way to the groomers...) Wink
