approach to draw a mountain outline & fill, but be able to adjust later?

What would be the best approach to draw a mountain outline using a vector approach & fill, but be able to adjust the outline later via a vector approach? (i.e. outline shouldn't get rasterized)


So the approach would need to be able to:

* create the outline & selection with a vector based approach

* vector selection has to be effectively saved for later

* modification later should support getting access to the original handles of the vector selection (say with Pen tool) and make adjustment

* after adjustement of the vector area is made, the fill should automatically occur on the extended or contracted area


Any advice on approach/which tools to use in CS6 to be able to do this?

    Just use the pen tool (p) and set the type to shape. The achor points can be selected with the direct select tool (a).
