Corner Pocket

Andrew Stokes

Great coverage traveling up Winterhouse Brook Gorge. Conditions allowed for accessing the upper rim without taking skis off. Corner Pocket Couloir had high quality, stable snow and the runout was amazing. Managed to reach the lookout platform on the Tablelands trail before putting on skins due to the good conditions and coverage in the gorge. While we were in there a few cornices broke off of the rim over the east aspect of the gorge and created significant debris up to size 3 (pictured).

Snow conditions were: Powder. Weather conditions were: Cold, Windy. We rode: Alpine slopes, Steep slopes. Riding quality was good.


Sun released cornice failure.
