With a 5 a.m. start to the day, Parkin and his crew got after it early to explore this largely untapped backcountry zone in Cooke City, Montana.

 

“Definitely a bit of an adventure,” says Parkin of the mission.

 

After getting cliffed out, the crew found a workaround and made it to the saddle where they were rewarded with a playful pillow zone loaded with fresh snow. Check out this fun edit of Parkin getting up to get down.
