If long, steep and aesthetic define a line as classic, then the Y Couloir is right near the top of the list in the Wasatch. When you catch it in over 2 feet of powder ... I'd call it a clasSICK! You don't approach a line like this packed with tons of new snow lightly. Last year we were lucky enough to have a highly stable period of snowfall. We had been skiing many aspects and seen that the Y couloir had been sluffing and avalanching so we deemed it ready to ride. You really only get a handful of days like this in a lifetime.
