March 26, Alpental Slackcountry

Big brother, Kelly, had wanted to go for a ski tour all winter.  With weather looking crappy, but Kelly actually having the time to tour, we took the easy route and rode Alpental's lifts to the top.  Scooted out the backcountry gate and over to Pineapple basin, where we stuck our skins on, and headed to Bryant Pass.  Kelly got some good practice making steep kick turns, and after a 1,000 feet of climbing we were in the wind, at Bryant pass.   Dropped into Bryant couloir, for a variety of turns.

the crux, looking pretty easy with lots of snow
