Beating Terminal Cancer

Not to make light of cancer, but me & Alisha just beat the hell outta it.  Nevada’s Ruby Mountains have a sick little backcountry line called Terminal Cancer.  Amongst skiers, it’s a classic line….so we made the trek out to the middle of nowhere and scared ourselves in a tight couloir.
