Silver Couloir

Nearly 3000' of skiing awaits those who put in the effort to climb to the top!!!  The Silver couloir has been regarded by several (Lou Dawson - Wild Snow, Chris Davenport - 50 Classic Ski Descents of N. America) as one of N. America's classic lines.  I have to say I agree.  The couloir is very wide (narrow section is 50 feet??), moderately steep at around 40 degrees, and LONG!!!
