@Philreedshikes - What an exciting story! Glad you made it to the hut before nightfall. Definitely shows the importance of having some extra navigation skills in your repertoire to keep things safe. Also, the photos are definitely not crap. They are great to look through while imagining y'all's trip!

It was such a big win to find your ski downhill. I have a little leash on my bindings and am told by some of my "ultralight" friends that I should take it off. This story adds to my list of reasons why it should stick around!

Be sure to let us know when the YouTube video is up. Thanks again for sharing!
