It's not really as steep as it looks IMHO. The entrance the skier in the pic took was just a perfect run in. I dropped right down what looks to be a vertical face in the pic. Smooth edgable chalk and just a short side slip down not your first turn. 100 feet in you hit the soft stuff and it was divine.

Corey Kopischke is a professional photographer currently based in both Steamboat Springs and here in Utah. The rest of these photos (except for the last one at dinner) were taken by Corey and used here with his permission.

I have a DSLR, but it never makes it to the slopes because I'm concerned about damaging it and possibly myself if I fall on it. That looks like some hairy terrain to be toting a DSLR into. I'm wondering if Corey has developed workarounds (or has a good alternative type of camera).
