Route: North Face Couloir Team: Ted, Dirk Bockelmann It’s amazing what a good day you have up in Montezuma Basin in October. Since Dirk and I were headed out on a climbing trip to Ecuador in a week or so we wanted some time up high. A bluebird day with easy skiing snow greeted us. […]
Route: Northwest Face Team: Ted, Dirk So far so good, we got El Diente and Mount Wilson the day before, and with another clear and cold night we should be able to shoot for two more summits today. One of them, Wilson Peak, might not be skiable off the summit, at least from the side […]
Route: North Face Team: Ted, Dirk Bockelmann After descending El Diente, we traversed as far as we could towards Mount Wilson and began climbing. Switching off trail breaking duty in regular intervals, we made pretty good time up the very direct North Face. This peak, like El Diente, warranted another visit. At the top of […]
Route: North Face Team: Ted, Dirk Bockelmann After some pretty good days so far this spring (we were just in the Sangres), and with a week remaining before work starts up, I figured I should keep charging. Dirk was free as well, so we decided to head down to the San Juans with the three […]
Route: South Face Team: Christy, Ted After coming off our big push in the Sawatch the weekend prior, we wanted to check out the Sangres. There was enough snow down there still to ski, but it was going fast. We made the drive to towards Alamosa and then up the horrendous Como Lake Road to […]
Route: East Face Team: ted, Dirk Bockelmann, Amos Whiting With just a few days before a trip to Chamonix and mere hours since getting home from skiing Uncompahgre Peak with Christy, I figured I might just take it easy when Dirks name came up on my caller ID. Not long after that, Dirk, myself, and […]
Route: East Face Team: Ted, Jeremy Barbin Snowmass Mountain has always been a favorite. Part of its allure lies in its remoteness, the fact that you can only really see it from other exciting locales. Backpacks, peak climbs and backcountry ski tours bring the mountain into sight, when I see it I must be doing […]
Route: Widowmaker (NW) Couloir Team: ted, Chris Carmichael, Dave Rhodes If you just came off Sunlight, then Windom naturally follows. Less than 1000 vertical feet and about a half mile away, to get one and not try for the other after getting this far away from home is crazy. For skiers it’s even more sensible, […]
Route: South Face (Red Couloir) Team: Ted, Chris Carmichael, Dave Rhodes After a great day on Sneffels, it was time to ratchet up the preparation for next months climb/ski attempt on Denali. We decided to head in to Chicago Basin for five days. We drove to Durango on Cinco De Mayo and proceeded to start […]
Route: South Face to Lavendar Col Team: Ted, Jann Stoeckl In June, Jann Stoeckl and I were headed to Denali with Aspen friends Sean Shean and Brad Smith. The four of us had the month of May to prep for what would be my biggest trip to date. This seemed to fit as preparation. We […]
