This came over the transom a few days ago, from Ted Mahon. He and a friend nailed a beautiful backcountry skiing descent of the Snake Couloir on Mount Sneffels, a Colorado fourteener in the San Juan mountains. Nice job boys!
According to Ted: “Dogleg couloir (aka Snake) on north side of Mt. Sneffels Nov. 7 with Kevin Dunnett. Kind of tight at the pinch but still a ski length wide, easy rappell from the summit into couloir, snow was good, kind of deep in parts, made for some tough trailbreaking. About 6 hours up. We heard about it being skiable from Skyward Mountaineering”
