Despite a slighly bizarre winter in the PNW and an unusually continental snowpack (i.e. high avy conditions), I was able to tick a couple classic ski descents over the past month. First, was the aesthetic North Face of Mt Maude. Then a couple weeks later, the highly scenic Ulrich's Couloir on Mt Stuart.

Full TR's on my blog.

Looks awesome. Mt. Stuart is a beautiful peak, seems like you have done a lot on it aside from skiing!

So I was racking my eight brain cells trying to remember where Mt Maude was,
I did remember the name, and then I remembered it was real close to
Too Far To Walk Rock. I knew nobody was going back in there on no snowboard
and I was right. But kudos for however you went, I have used snowgoes to
good avail, also. Looks like it was fun!

BITD I thought I had conned a helo pilot into dropping us off at the base
of Mt Goode for the FWA of the NE Buttress but he came to his senses and
decided it wasn't worth the risk to his summer contracts with the Park
Service if they found out. DAMN! I was like, "But you don't have to land!"
It didn't wash.
