what not to do.

Skiing down a steep face is actually quite amazing. No cliffs, no features just steep and wide, kind of feels effortless, like flying.

Here I got a bit carried away in the moment. This is a good example what not to do, getting caught in my own sluff. I had my exit point, which I scoped from below, to the skiers right of the bergschrund and was focusing on drifting my turns in that direction. So even if it wasn’t all that deep, the sluff caught up to me. I managed the sluff but buckled out on the surprisingly-wet-snow landing of the bergschrund, tired legs, loads of heavy shit in my backpack, yeah it was a bit too much fun.

This is from last spring from my edit I made from our tour up to Col Du Diable.
