Split Mountain

Huge, huge day on Split yesterday—we skied the north face right off the top of the north summit, then down into the Red Lake basin right beneath the east face and the central couloir. Yes, the video is long, but so was the adventure. The diversity, beauty, and abundance of skiable terrain in the Split vicinity really defies description. I think if road/trail access weren't so awful, I'd just forgo the rest of the range and spend all my time exploring here...
