Most excellent! Jeff and I have been talking about that for years. Here's my best shot from Forgotten a couple years ago. Do you think the last bit off the summit can be reasonably skied?

Major style points for a gratuitous lap on a first descent.

That's awesome, nice run!!! 

I've had that on my list for several years and been in the basin a couple times but conditions didn't warrant an attempt.  It's good to know it goes.  It's always looked like a nice run from the notch in the ridge down.  Way to go getting it!  It sounds a little dicey up high.

Beautiful shot, Jim. I think the false summit wouldn't be a problem; it may be possible to traverse all the way from the true summit. Wouldn't be much fun, though, and the exposure is a bit thought provoking. I still think the corkscrew->south ledges route could work, but the conditions under which it will go are probably more limited.

Phenomenal shot. Looks like something Gregg Collins and Brendan O’Neill might enjoy.

Way to open the door on Sloan. Great trip Andy!

Was curious what the history of the line was. Has Sloan been skied off the summit ridge out the W gully, or by the south ledges route before? I had a hard time imagining it had gone untouched, but couldn't find anything.

Lots of people have had their eye on that one. Nicely planned and executed!
I agree with the major style points taking that extra powder lap!  Grin

Yeah, if you are going to (attempt) to sh*t on somebody's TR, could you please at least provide some info to back it up?
