Peak 9699, Big Cottonwood Canyon- 1.31.2016

We got another great storm to start of the weekend, so we decided to head up one of my favorite lines here in the Wasatch, Peak 9699. The climb up was great and so much more filled in than last year. We made it to the first over look, then moved across the face to Greens Basin. My partner Chris found a new route to the ridge so we took that and I have to say that I like that one much better than the previous route we took in there. We made our way up through the aspens and pines and eventually made it to the top of the Meadow Chutes. We then made the last jaunt up to the peak. The wind was blowing really cold and a storm was moving in from the south. So we made the switch over and dropped in. The snow was in such great condition we just rallied through the glades getting some of the best turns of the season. The ride out was really good, even being able to ride all the way to the car. Enjoy the video from our day up there. Pray 4 Snow!
