As Spring works to take over the Salt Lake Valley, Winter is still the king in the mountains. Yesterday, Scott and I got in an early morning tour up and down the Y Couloir. He had never been up this great line and yesterday seemed like a good time to do it. While conditions varied, the upper couloir yielded soft snow. However, crossing over a day or two old avalanche debris, the lower sections skied marginally at best. Regardless, the time in the steep Little Cottonwood Canyon environment was wonderful. It was a great way to kick off General Conference weekend.
