My buddy and I tried climbing the Triple Couloirs on Dragontail on Tuesday only to be thwarted by drifts of low density powder up to our eyeballs. the ice was buried underneath 3 inches - 4 feet of life changing powder, making us wish we had skied the enchantments rather than tried for the TC. 

OH WELL MY LOSS YOUR GAIN GO SKI THE CHANTIES LIKE YOUR POWDER HOUNDING LIFE DEPENDS ON IT. 

Also its primetime for anyone that wants to ski that couloir system! 

Looking up the first powder filled couloir

How was access to the Colchuck trailhead? FS road still closed? Skiable to the gate?
