Dragon's Tail Couloir
Group/Date: Zack Novak and Mirza Peljtoon Jan 13th 2015
After over a week of high pressure I figured that there was some aspects that were starting to stabilize a bit and was hoping to find some steeper terrain to ski. Sure enough there were some like-minded folks out there and I talked to a few people that had recently skied Dragon's Tail in the park. A few hours drive from Summit I still was eager in heading that way and giving her a go and so talked to Zack Novak who was willing to join. Then we also ended up meeting Mirza Peljto at the top of the couloir. Great skiing with you man! I haven't spent much time in the park but every time I do it just makes me want to come back for more! A 5:15 departure from Dillon we found ourselves entering into the park and on the trail by 8:30. A sunny and beautiful day lay ahead.
45 minutes later we found ourselves at Emerald Lake staring up at this beauty!
Skinning shortly transitioned to booting.
Conditions seemed to be ideal. We dug a quick pit and found about 3-4 inches of fresh on top of over a 60cm layer of finger dense snow. Feeling good we headed onward and upward!
Then it was time for the fun!!
