March 22nd, 2014 Eagle Peak(Tatoosh) North Couloir
« on: 03/23/14, 02:18 PM »

       Saign and I skied the northeast couloir on Eagle Peak. About 1,000 ft of actual couloir and about 1,000 ft on the apron. We approached from cougar rock campground via the wonderland trail. We didn't do a lot of planning and overshot the base of the couloir and ended up skiing through some steep trees and some really nice old growth. Ended up spending an extra two hours on the scenic route before getting back on track. The couloir was deep pow with ice in spots and the apron was shallow smooth pow with a slalom course of alder bushes. All in all this thing was fun, easier to access than we thought, and not crazy steep until the very top.


Bootpacking vert style!

Shreddin!


The exit was brutal. Smiley


Topped off the day with burgers and killer pie at the copper creek inn.
