Wedge Mountain: Northwest Couloir

June 2-3, 2007

Finally! After an aborted attempt and much waiting I finally got to ski Wedge. I headed up with Scott and a contingent of VOCers – Pitor, Christian and Line. Although we didn’t get a hard freeze Saturday night, the couloir was still in excellent ski conditions.
