March 19, 2012, Kendall Couloirs Powder
« on: 03/22/12, 11:16 PM »

This past monday was a great opportunity to check out some of the Kendall Couloirs in great snow. Throughout the approach we noticed instabilities on sun affected south and west slopes, but our lines were all north facing which ended keeping knee deep stable blower powder. Ended up riding two pretty sweet lines off of the ridge with only minor sluffing. No pictures from the day, but my buddy put together a sweet non- POV edit from our trip.

Nice video!  What type of camera was your friend using?  There's something nice about a well-put together sequence of normal video as opposed to the usual headcam vids (of which I am guilty)

ejk- Not sure what kind of camera it was, just some small little mini dv nothing special. I've been doing the same thing with making only POV edits, having the long shot really puts things in better perspective.

Some nice steep skiing there, and I really like the non-POV video.

Nice vid and some seriously sweet lines! 

Is that terrain in the Silver Cr. drainage?
