14er Ski Descents – Mount Evans – May 26, 2006
Route: Northeast Face
Team: Ted, Chris Davenport
A few days after Snowmass, Dav called and we were off to Evans. Another repeat, yes, but somehow I always have fun. It’s all about getting out and up somewhere, with friends, it never gets old. Like my solo day here in 2005 we skied the Northeast Ridge but unlike last year, we drove to the summit, skied, and then hiked back up.
Spring ’06 was winding down— Chris had hit nearly all of the skiable lines on the 14ers and as we drove home we discussed what we might still be able to get before summer. He wanted Holy Cross, I wanted South Maroon.
