Chelsea Morgan and I skinned up Basin Mountain to Basin Couloir, then booted up to the top of the couloir. I scrambled up fourth class rock to the summit; no one signed the register since August. We skied the couloir finding variable snow; powder to a variety of crusts, then found some good corn flakes on the lower mountain.
Elevation: ~6000
Distance: ~5.4 miles
Time: ~6:40
