Trond and I had a wonderful day of backcountry skiing and avalanche awareness last Thursday.  We skied in Commodore Basin – just down the road from the summit of Red Mountain Pass – and we found really nice powder and good stability on the North aspect of the basin.  For our first run we skied “Grandma’s Couloir”, a 35+ degree chute with just enough room for two tracks.
