The stormy spring weather continues, and there’s wintery snow everywhere up high. We recently went to Belleview Mountain, 13,233 ft. up the West Maroon Valley, a peak that Christy and I have been eying to ski for a while.
Belleview is located about 6 miles up West Maroon Creek, between South Maroon Peak and West Maroon Pass. Due to the combination of its distance from the Maroon Lake Trailhead and its lower elevation compared to many neighboring peaks, Belleview doesn’t see many visitors. But there’s a really fun, steep, northeast facing couloir that falls right from its small summit, and it’s well worth the trip.
So while everyone else was up on Independence Pass, Christy, Joey, and I logged a few extra miles as we made our way up to Belleview and had the place all to ourselves. Go check it out, it’s is a fun peak.
