Mattyc,

Have you seen the film called "Steep" which is a historic overview of some serious extreme skiers. It is brilliant and filmed on location in Grand Teton, Chamonix and Valdez in Alaska. This is in the fall and your dead league. As the footnote stated "not everyone who goes up the mountain - returns" I have just brought the book "The Edge of Never" and am looking forward to reading it.
I just love the gravitational pull

I think that bloke Xavier had done it before. When I was in Chamonoix two years ago the guide we had pointed to a 60deg+ slope (quite possibly the one in the video) and told us the story of two guys climbing and riding it that winter. He was saying that on the snowboards they were using their ice axes to turn!!!
