Photos from Long Canyon tour

Postby Matt » Wed Mar 26, 2008 8:04 am

Here's a short TR from Long Canyon near Taos:

Players - Bob, Velocity, and myself

Location - Various terrain and obstacles at the head of Long Canyon

Snow Conditions - everything but powder


Now on to the photos:

This is the chute we went to ski - "Mary's Chute" as we named it a couple of years ago when it took us three trips to find it skiable. Unfortunately it had a nice ~47 degree entrance of extremely wind affect snow (i.e. ice), as well as perfectly located rocks to catch sliding people.

So we bailed (we're batting .250 on this chute now) and skied the nice open headwall of Long Canyon.

We then went on to climb back up what we had just skied and traversed around to the next peak on the ridge in the background of the above photos.


Where Bob took a nice photo of me that shows multiple TGR clichés. (Taos Ski Valley is directly behind me)

That looks like it would be a pretty sweet line when the conditions are right. Since the finger mustache made an appearance, I'll throw in one of these Image

Trail starts from the upper lot at TSV - same as Bull of the Woods Yurt. Our day was ~8 hrs round trip.
