POV VIDEO – Faceting the Fatwah Couloir – Ophir, CO – 01/10/12….



Music: Dillinja – Cybotron

Synopsis:

While it was dirt in the backcountry around Tahoe, the Telluride area in Colorado actually had a snowpack to facilitate a ski tour. With Angela Hawse as a guide, we headed up from Trout Lake over Yellow Mountain to descent the Fatwah couloir into Ophir. Some variable snow, some pow, some bushes, but overall a great day out in perfect weather.
