Duffy Cayoosh – 1,000,000 Couloir Feb 9, 2010

Words and photos by Sharon Bader and Lee Lau unless otherwise noted.

With Alex and Jeff, I went up to Cayoosh Peak from parking lot to peak in 3.5 hours. We took advantage of recent sticky stable snow to ski from the peak proper then down 1,000,000 coulour. We ascended about 1550m. Fast travel conditions had us back by 2.15 at parking lot after a rare lolly-gag 7am start from Whistler. It sure was nice to not have to fart around with ropes today

Alex’s writeup is here

Cayoosh East Glacier looks like its been trampled by herds of sex-starved elephants

Alex stares longingly at Cayoosh Pk. We skied off the summit ridge
