May 24 Ski Team Recon at Camp 3

The ski team did some skiing above Camp 3 today. There are several “couloirs” (think rock chutes) coming off of the summit ridge that drop several thousand feet down to Camp 3. The apron (lower reaches of the run, where the rock chute opens up into a basin) of these couloirs often offers some good skiing. From below at Camp 3, it can be tough to get a read on conditions in the upper parts of these runs. Being able to walk up to them and scout them offers some perspective, but most importantly, it offers a chance to get in some skiing! Which is what the team is here to do! Camp 3 is really where the most skiing is at on Denali, so it is an ideal place to hang out and get in some runs.
