As Brittany explained in her Pencil Trip Report, we weren’t really planning on skiing this area, but thanks to a dead snowmobile, it’s where we ended up. On a recent ski of the Quill, I had noted a side couloir that my buddy Gary Hicks is pretty into, and it looked amazing- so that’s where Ben Furimsky and I headed. It ended up being a beautiful line, one of my favorites in fact, so it ended up being a great day. I’ve never heard it called anything, so to continue on the theme of that area, I’m just calling it the Ballpoint Pen for now.
People rarely watch our videos, but I think this one’s pretty fun, despite all the jumpturns- the quick look uphill around 1:54 is of the Quill- and yes, it’s that steep. Gets really skinny at 1:10. Check it out:
Otherwise, I did get a few photos of Ben:
Until next time, thanks for checking in at 14erskiers!
