A ski descent of the Northeast Couloir on Willow Peak, 13,336 ft.
Snow has been falling steadily all season. The backcountry has been slowly filling in and we’ve been getting out on some of our favorite winter ski tours when we can.
Our annual Christmas Eve Hut Trip, now in its 9th year, was to Tagert Hut. Five of us made the trip up to celebrate the holiday and do a little skiing on Christmas morning.
A 12 mile trail running loop outside of Marble, CO through Buckskin Basin, over three passes and through two forks of Avalanche Creek.
The big East Face of Snowmass Mountain is one of the best 14er ski descents in the Elk Mountains.
Our annual holiday hut trip tradition continues. This year five of us made the trek in to Tagert Hut on Christmas Eve. As is always the case with this ritual, and hut trips in general, it was a really good time. (more…)
We ventured to Barnard Hut for Thanksgiving this year, and Christy towed a cooked turkey in a sled the entire way.
A few years back our good friend Rickey Gates organized a guided, multi-day trail running adventure through the 10th Mountain Hut System. He called it the Hut Run Hut. The idea was to lead a group of adventurous trail runners along a roughly 100 mile route between Aspen and Vail. The trip was spread out over 6 days, and visited five different huts along the way.
A couple of alternate routes to travel or trailrun from Aspen or Marble to Crested Butte.
We finally skied Treasure Mountain. The massive 13,528 foot mountain outside of Marble, Colorado can be seen from high points all around the Elk Range.
