3-8-2011 Boulder Point

I made it back a couple days ago from a ski trip to the Selkirks north of Nelson BC. Good snow, good terrain, but Don and I managed to ski a 3000′ line today that was 50% longer than any of the runs I skied in the Selkirks. Good for the Bitterroots! We skied up to Boulder Point and skied one of the long north facing gullies off the ridgeline there. There was about 6 inches fresh on a soft snow base at 7800′ which became about 3 inches of fresh on a nice breakable crust at 5000′. We had a CT23 at 18 inches deep Q2 with no propagation in the ECT. So we dropped into the steep chute and skied it top to bottom with only a single stop. I will post a youtube video to my page http://www.youtube.com/user/johnlehrman?feature=mhum.
