Here's what Cody Peak looks like from the top of the tram on a sunny day (which today was definitely not). Four Shadows is outlined in red:
And another shot with a bit more of a close-up. You can make out a skier midway down the left side (looking at the photo) of the couloir and another standing at the upper left corner:
So unlike those nice, sunny photos, it was really gray today with almost no contrast. The snow was fairly dense in the less-skied areas and nice, firm and chalky in the spots in the couloir where people had made quite a few turns in the last few days. Four Shadows is quite steep (just under 50 degrees) for the first several turns. That makes it an exhilerating destination no matter what the conditions. We hiked up the ridge toward Cody Peak and started skiing the couloir about an hour after leaving the top of the tram.
In this photo, Dave is at the top of the entrance to the main part of the couloir poised to drop in:
And here he is lower down in the chute with a couple of boys who went before us checking him out:
Four Shadows is one of Jackson Hole's classic out-of-bounds tours. It's steep enough to really get your attention but the consequences of a fall are relatively minor. Just plain old fun stuff.
The light was so flat and gray that I didn't even bother with any photos lower down.
