Royal Deuce Couloir:
After such an amazing line on Deuce, we didn't want to stop. Round 2. Gary, Eddie, and Nate had scoped and skied a line around the area and ever since I saw it, I knew that I had to check her out. This is a line that is hidden to all unless you summit a certain peak in the area. We drove to our next TH and were off. A little over an hour later and we found ourselves standing atop our next line. Wow, this line was way more awesome than I had expected. We also had perfect corn due to it being South facing and dropping in at about 3pm. Perfect spring corn, couldn't ask for better. This line stays nice and inset throughout 3/4 of the line and offers up a perfect angle for ripping turns. Once at the bottom the snowpack got fairly thin but we were able to ski back to the trail and eventually right back into town where we caught the bus back to the car.
Dirty Books Couloir:
After such a great day yesterday we wanted to keep with the pace and ski another mini golf line in the area. Frank had to work and so Travis and I met up at about 9am and drove to the Mt. Royal TH. We made quick work of the ascent and were at the Mt Royal summit in a little over 45 minutes. Another beautiful day out and we dropped in at a perfect time to allow the snow to soften up, but not too much. The gladed trees above the chute proper offered up great soft turns and we stopped at the top of the chute proper. I did a few slope cuts and then let Travis drop first as I wanted to get some pics of him. The upper portion of the chute was much steeper than we thought, we didn't measure but guessed 40 degrees or a little more. The entire chute offered up great soft turns all the way back down to the skin track.
