Matterhorn Peak:
I skinned up Horse Creek, then up to the base of Ski Dreams Couloir of Matterhorn Peak. I climbed the couloir measuring a slope angle of 43 degrees. At the top, I dropped my skis and scrambled to the summit on class three rock and snow. The summit had good views of Twin Peaks & Whorl Mountain. I returned to the top of the couloir and skied it. The snow was very wind-affected.
