After finishing skiing Colorado’s 14ers in 2010, I had the incredible honor to be nominated for a Sportswomen of Colorado award.
Before the season started, Christy and I sat down with our friends at Cripple Creek Backcountry down in Carbondale as guests on their backcountry skiing podcast, Totally Deep. We were surprised to learn that Totally Deep is one of the only podcasts that exist on the topic of backcountry skiing. Randy and Doug do a […]
In the department of good news, we were recently nominated as National Geographic Adventurers of the Year, for our completion of the Centennial Ski Project. It’s a huge honor to be considered for this award, something that National Geographic has been organizing since 2005. Teamwork is everything. What began years ago as three individual pursuits […]
As a Colorado backcountry skier, the mere prospect of spring brings excitement. But I found myself particularly psyched for the upcoming season after poring over a copy of the new guidebook, Climbing and Skiing Colorado’s Mountains – 50 Select Ski Descents. This book is long overdue. It’s co-authored by Ben Conners and Brian Miller, two […]
Spring is here. The busy work season is winding down, the backcountry snowpack is deeper and more stable– this is often the time we get to pursue our personal skiing goals. I have to say we’re really looking forward to this next objective. Christy, Chris Davenport, and I are setting out to ski the Centennials. […]
It’s always a bit of a gamble to plan an ambitious trip to the mountains of the Pacific Northwest. The fickle, if not downright lousy weather has dealt more than it’s share of disappointment to locals and visitors alike. So we knew when we got the invite to join Chris Davenport on the Spyder Volcano […]
Route: East Face Team: Ted, Christy, Dirk Bockelmann, Joey Giampaolo, Sean Shean Christy was ready to wrap things up, and despite her efforts to not leave the hardest peaks for last, only Pyramid Peak and Capitol Peak remained on her list. Our friends from town, well aware of the possibility of her finishing, made themselves […]
Route: Southwest Face/Hourglass Couloir Team: Ted, Christy After a huge drive from Aspen to Alamosa the long way (without Indy Pass), we opted to crash in a hotel. The next day was going to be long, so some better rest than we’d likely get in the back of the truck would be needed. We were […]
Route: North Face Team: Christy, Ted We made the long trip down to the Huerfano Valley, and drove up the road as far as the snow would allow. The next morning went smoothly, with the crux of the day being the creek crossing, and in both directions. We climbed the class 3 couloir on the […]
Route: Southeast Couloir Team: Ted, Christy, Kim Havell, Karen Kingsley Taking advantage of the huge upslope storm that blanketed the Sangres with snow a few weeks earlier, we went to the Crestone Needle. We skinned up the South Colony Lakes Road and set up camp for the night. The next morning, as we made our […]
