Pikes Peak Y Couloir POV

Inversion over the eastern plain.

I headed up to Pikes Peak a few weeks back with Rick, Justin, and Brian to have a go at the Y Couloir.  Pikes had recently gotten blanketed with a Front Range spring upslope, so we knew there was a good chance it would be in and possibly even good.  On top of that we knew Brittany Walker’s group would likely be up there as the window on Pikes was looking small for the season and she had saved it for last in her quest to ski the Colorado 14ers.  We figured we’d crash the party and offer our congratulations in person.  Here are a few photos from the day as well as a POV I put together, for a more detailed description of the route see my TR from a few years ago.

Brittany near the end of her ski. With this descent, she became the 2nd woman to ski the 14ers, and the 9th person overall.

And finally, my POV footage (available in HD):
