Skier dropping into extremely steep couloir
Mistaya Lodge, situated in the Rocky Mountains, is surrounded by awe-inspiring terrain. The jagged rock spire reaching skyward in this photo, called "The Sceptre" is just one such feature.
During a trip there in April of 2017, we were lucky enough to have stable conditions that the couloir below The Sceptre was safe to ski.
In this photo, my wife, Jana, reminds me who the better skier in our family is!
