East Face of Buck Mountain to Buckshot Couliour

One of the best ski days of my life. Blower pow off the top of Buck Mountain. Just under 6,000 ft of vertical. Blue. Warm. Still. Light, fluffy snow. Brooks, Rob, and Ben. Buckshot Couliour also had magical, delicious turns for us. Started at Bradley/Taggert TH. Went over the Uller’s and onto Mavric. Drop into Stuart’s Draw at the top of Maveric, and from there onto the ridge and to the summit. Butt Pickering ascent. Really exposed and hairy in places. Ice axes necessary. Could have had a better day. A righteous send.
