I admit that I'm having a hard time seeing the line you skied, partially due to the fact that it looks impossibly steep in the photos.  Also, having thrutched up the NE Butt route a few summers ago, I can't imagine many skiable lines on that face of Goode, holy crap!  Can you draw the route on a photo?

Anyway, congrats on a very cool FD on a sweet mountain in a spectacular area! Cool

The Coda to that story is almost as mind blowing as the terrain up high.  The ski breaking could have happened at worse times during your trip.  I'm sure you've reflected on that in the cold dark night. 

Inspired skiing.  Great write up.  Memorable.

It's the lower col that appears to have a cornice in that pic, and the bottom is obscured by the cloud.

Wow!  You guys put the hard in hardcore!  We kept looking over there wondering how it was going.  Awesome to hear it went well.

Too bad about the ski.  Hopefully DPS will take care of you.  I doubt they would help me if my 99s broke due to the quantity of mounting holes.

I've been looking at that face for decades and never thought I'd see a ski descent. Strong work - congratulations.

The definitions of "skiable" and "climbable" are always changing.  It's very cool to be able to be on a site that has people pushing the limits and still finding ways to  do "new" things in areas that have been played in for decades. Congratulations on a beautiful, impossible looking line! You should get free beers for some time!!!

Wild line, in a season of highs and lows.
Cool to see you guys ski your dream line.
In pure and human powered style. Under the
Radar, just like the mighty North Cascades.

If I hear that either of you guys is planning on skiing Whazzup Willis, I'm going to pull the starters out of your cars....
Congrats on a great line and write-up.  You guys "know when to hold 'em and know when to fold 'em".  Glad this one worked out.
