North Maroon Peak – Ski POV

Posted on June 1, 2010


We dropped in at about 10:30am and followed some barely visible tracks for the ski decent. During the climb, we encountered everything from impenetrable ice to knee-deep sugar snow, but the descent only saw ice, corn, and slush. At 1:15 you can see the exposure we were climbing around on the east face. At 2:20 you can see a wet slide I kicked off that ran all the way to the bottom of the mountain. At 4:38 you can see me get in the backseat, hit some ice, and take a pretty vicious tumble. All was OK afterwards, I only ran out of memory card space to film the rest of the ski.

This descent wrapped up my “official” ski season, but I am still going to try and ski every month for this year. I will maybe post a season recap next month, or I might take a break from blogging. We’ll see. Either way, thanks for reading throughout the season, and I can only hope next season is as good as this one.
