Hiked Stevens Peak Sunday and found some crazy lines. Off the sichter scale. No photos yet but we shot lots of video, I'll try to get some posted up soon.
Conditions were 6"-10" fresh, some fast, some fluffy, over edgeable crust.
Mid elevations were better than the tops. N / NE windsheltered exposures were best.

Does anyone know the name of the <a href ="http://www.gmap-pedometer.com/?r=576126">East-facing main chute</a> that comes down from just under the Summit of Stevens?

Two of my teleskiier friends did it, pretty nuts. Also, anyone know the names of the <a href ="http://www.gmap-pedometer.com/?r=719679">chutes/area</a> in the basin NW of the main summit of Stevens? We did a bunch of these too, including a tight board-width hallway chute.

the main line off stevens is called the comma couloir and those chutes in the cirque to the nw of the summit are called the chutes in the cirque nw of the summit :wink:

Nice shot. If you took away the background it looks like someone out surfing in a fullsuit and a hood. Thats cool

Very nice, the snow seems pretty good up there by the looks of your pics. We had planned on going down to the Carson area but stopped at Tallac due to a late start....I think my next time out will be somewhere in that area.

We are definitely going back after the next storm. There was more amazing terrain back there than we had time for in a day. Many very good chutes, scary as you want them.
