Southwest Couloir – Mount Moran, GTNP 3-13-2015

We started our adventure at 8pm.  Definitely a late start for an 11 mile skin to our Campsite.  We arrived at camp at 1am and were sound asleep at 2am.  Our intention was to be up at 6am, but when the alarm went off we decided we could use a a little more sleep.  We were out of our tents just in time to catch the sunrise.

I'm not usually one for selfies, but after working so hard to stand here I couldn't help myself.

The Southwest Couloir on Mount Moran is a beautiful ski.  It is a long ways to go, but definitely worth the effort.  And it one heck of an adventure.
