The ski descent was steep; stable; springy; SOLID! Basically one of the best backcountry runs I've ever taken. I believe I had, and this is the technical term, a "shit-eating grin" on my face the whole way down. So did Andrew and Alice.
For the descent, we took turns making turns, all the while sure to relish in the fruit of our efforts. That's really the best part about BC skiing - each turn is that much sweeter because you earned every. Single. One.
Now, as promised - Ski Porn:

We bottomed out and skinned back up to the Col, where we were greeted with more wintry views, and enjoyed another 2,000' decent back to the hut. Great day.
