With conditions doubtful, Ben and Louise hike for miles into the NH backcountry in search of good snow. The hardwork pays off and they're rewarded with huge, open, untracked powder down some remote rock slides. Soon afterwards it snows 18" in the region and Ben is sure one of his favorite chutes is ready to rock. When hiking up, however, he discovers that all there is is pretty much rock. The fresh snow has blown away in the fierce winds. All is not lost, though, and at the top the crew discovers an amazingly narrow pincher chute like nothing they've seen before.
