Pac Man Couloir

Banff Yoho & Kootenay National Park

Climbed above the choke point of Pac Man before we were stopped by facets and a mean looking convexity. A supportive crust made for a decent bootpack up until that point. Like other couloirs in the area there are isolated pockets where small unreactive slabs have formed above the crust. Sluff is moving very fast with enough energy to take a skier off their feet.

Snow conditions were: Crusty. Weather conditions were: Cloudy. We rode: Alpine slopes, Steep slopes. We avoided: Sunny slopes. Riding quality was good.
