We first had planned on skiing Buck but because of uneasiness the night before we changed plans to go hike up Garnet Canyon, look around and see what would be good to ski. What we decided to ski, was the West Hourglass, and the skiing was as good as it gets.

I don't think words are needed to describe the day, so instead here are a bunch of photos.

The spiny east face of Ferry
Ferry Peak: a just-under-10,000-foot-peak of awesome spines and semi-endless terrain what some would consider too far to drive for, which is odd, considering what is there and only an hour away. If you watch ski films, especially from TGR or Brain Farm you have probably seen this zone shot a couple dozen times. For good reason.

The Sliver

I haven't stared at a line from across the way in some time that made me feel intimidated, scared, humbled, excited and inspired to slide sideways down its massive but tight snow wall. Let me tell you about this classic ski line, classic for a reason, mainly because it stares at you from the Bradley-Taggart Parking Lot for all to see, tourers and tourists alike.

The Sliver: a 1500', (guessing) 35 to 45 degree couloir located in the Grand Teton National Park on Nez Perce (pron: Ney Per-say) was first skied by Doug Coombs and Rick Armstrong in 1994.
