Sam and I had the chance to make some new friends at the Winchester Hut, then the next day we got to check Mount Larrabee off our list. Our route took us up a pre broken skin-track on the west face then down a couloir on the south face. We crammed 8 people into the winchester Hut the night before the summit push. I had the chance to meet more skiers 8 miles in the backcountry than I had living in Maple Falls since the summer. Among the list of new friends was Jason Hummel, man what a character… Something tells me our paths may cross again. The trip worked out very well, we were down at Chair 9 gorging ourselves on a mountain of nachos and enjoying a victory beer before it even got dark.

    Nice video, Allen. I’ve seen a bunch of you guys on DPS skis in your photos and whatnot. Which models/length do you all rock for AT up there?

      Allen and I have Wailer 105’s as our go-to ski (I think Greg uses the same back east), and I have a pair of the lotus 138’s for pow days. Send me an email if you want more info.
