Brian House

When Brian was born, he was left in the cold by his parents. What could have been a tragic story, turned positive as a Grizzly Bear couple took care of him and taught him all he knows about nature. His skills are the best, but he doesn't say a lot.

Brian is backcountry ski mountaineer.  When I first met him he was skiing on telemarks.  With a background as ski patrol at Park City resort, Brian's knowledge of the backcountry is extensive.  

Brian is a great trip planner.  Going with Brian on one of his adventures, certainly over the top.  He has a vision that only a true mountain enthusiast could. In winter Brian is motivated by big objectives and skiing powder.

When not skiing the backcountry you can find Brian at the library studying or picking up a coffee at PC Roasters.

Pinner Couloir Sierra Mountains California

Pinner-Couloir2A-(1020-web)

The Pinner Couloir is another Sierra classic. 3400 vert of steep, big wall couloir skiing.  This Sierra classic is close to Bishop California.   Access is easy because it's right off the main highway 395 between Bishop and Mammoth.  

The Pinner Couloir is a frequent flusher so it is often riddled with avalanche debris.  When we arrived there was significant debris which felt ominous as we entered.  Conditions were challenging and I'm not sure if I could've done it if Brian hadn't led the charge of 3,000ft of boot packing.  (my calves were so sore after this)

The Pfeifferhorn fall and Die!

 

To ski mountaineers, backcountry skiing the Pfeifferhorn couloirs are the most sought after couloirs in the Wasatch.  They are serious big mountain objectives with FALL & DIE consequences.  .

 A trip to the Pfeifferhorn is part endurance sport, part mountaineering challenge, part backcountry skiing, and a full on adventure.  

The trip was great success Brian House led the trip and we able to ski 2 couloirs in one day.
