Chris Coulter spends his seasons guiding in Silverton, Colorado; Haines, Alaska; and Bariloche, Argentina. It’s a busy program, traveling the world from epic location to epic location, but even for a skilled guide like Coulter, one thing that never takes a backseat is the continuing education required to stay sharp where the avalanche dragons lurk.

Asulkan Hut at Night

After a wild ride through New Zealand in an unreliable Delica van, Kyle Miller landed back in the Northern Hemisphere. But our resident splitboard vagabond is a tough man to pin down, especially when the snowpacks are abnormally thin in the Pacific Northwest. Before we even knew he was stateside, Kyle was back on the road again, traveling north to Rogers Pass in the Canadian touring mecca of Glacier National Park. To keep us up to speed on his wanderings and his whereabouts, Kyle sent us this report of attending the Canuck Splitfest, linking up with Holly Walker and Liz Daley, touring into the Asulkan Hut with a big Washington crew, and slaying the famous lines of Forever Young and Seven Steps to Paradise in the heart of the Selkirks.
