Looks like there’s still plenty of snow to push around in Mammoth Lakes, California judging by this backcountry adventure by the Owen Leeper. Excellent advice from Mr. Leeper on using Google Maps to find the best climbing routes to access lines.

“Skiing Pinner Couloir outside Mammoth Lakes, CA. I like to use google earth to find the easiest way up and down couloirs in areas I’ve never skied before. Luckily i was able to scope this line from a couple days earlier, so i knew it went through. I was able to hike up the safe route, away from rock and wet slides in the chute, then ski down it quick and as safe as possible.”
