In 2007, ski mountaineer Mark Newcomb commented on a website that he believed the full Southwest Couloir of Wyoming's Middle Teton had not been skied in its entirety out of Cascade Canyon, offering a clean descent of the Middle Teton without ropes. That provided inspiration for pro skier Caroline Gleich and Adam OKeefe to attempt to ski it this spring. Here's the couloir as viewed from Icefloe Lake.
