4:00 start, fairly ambitious plans, pretty stable conditions, reasonable weather, Chad A, Andy; seemed like a great combo. North West of the Pfeifferhorn was up first. When we hit the ridge above Red Pine Lake it was still dark.
|Andy boots the rocky section on the way to the Pfeiff|
|Bad picture, pretty morning|
We were making good time, watched the sun rise on the summit, and were psyched to ski when...
Happened 10 feet into the NW couliour. Andy still managed to make turns though.
Skiing was good/great.
The rap was pretty filled in, Chad opted for the hip rappel.
The binding ended the day WAY too early. Oh well, still a great morning.
|Andy's 3rd broken binding in the last month|
|Chad about to hit a few more turn before the rap|
