Mt.Black N bowl ski into Pine Creek

Devin Schmit, Anna Bergstrom and I gunning for a Mt.Black summit and hopefully a Y-couloir descent.
A little wet slide debris always makes the skinning easier.
Devin says up so up we go.
Topping out the first little access couloir instead of following where the trail left where it goes to the lake. 

Stoked on these glasses.

Anna found it much easier to boot up the access couloir with sharp spikes on her feet. Doesnt that photo make her look like she is super hard-core?!

You can barely see the skin track heading up the N bowl of Mt.Black to the left.

Anna, from IL, is killing it.

Gained the ridge where Anna met her maximum skiing potential. Devin and I ditched out summit fever to stay together as a group and we still got an excellent descent.

Backcountry cliff dropping! (not really)

The access couloir.
Anna showing that slope who is boss!

The paradise valley is beautiful no matter what angle you look at it. It was particularly striking from this vantage point. 

Cowabunga dude!
