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.
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.
We joined friends at the Lindley Hut last week and did a cool tour on and around nearby Star Peak. I’ve always considered April to be prime time for the Braun Huts…
The 20th annual Elk Mountains Grand Traverse was this past weekend. It was the 15th time both Christy and I have completed this race, nine of which have been as a team.
It wasn’t much of a start, but this winter has sure developed into something nice. This past January has seen tons of snow so far, and while it’s early and things can change, the stability in the backcountry has been really good as well.
The Ruby Range Traverse is a ridge traverse from Yule Pass to Ruby Peak across the nine named summits of the Ruby Range above Kebler Pass near Crested Butte, Colorado.
