A different kind of Asulkan

My third trip to the Asulkan Cabin was a different one. Without the usual bottomless powder and some awesome stability we took the opportunity to Explore. We did the Jupiter Traverse which includes Caster, Pollux and Leda peaks and ends in the Thorington descent. Thanks to the crew for another awesome mission into Rogers! Oh and I heard from some swiss guy that Laura Flannery slayed Forever Young Couloir! Will miss you Laura, safe travels.
