First ski descent of Easy Gully this season?
27th December 2012
(Above) 3 skiers just visible at the top of Easy Gully about to make their descent. Pretty variable snow conditions in the gully ranging from softer snow, sugary crust to boiler plate and chopped up old (hard) avalanche debris. They were slower in the steeper middle section where it is a bit narrower but seemed to manage the descent with reasonable ease, though one of the party did fall near Last Post but regathered himself and finished in some style. A good route choice and the right day to do it. I think that’s the first descent of Easy Gully this winter(?)
