Our trip report from Bald Mountain, 13,684 ft., a Bicentennial peak outside of Breckenridge, Colorado.
A 2019 ski descent of the Northwest Face of Drift Peak, an unranked 13er in the Tenmile Range near Breckenridge.
A 2019 ski descent of the South Slopes of Mount Sherman, the third 14er that Christy and Elsie Weiss have skied together.
The Tenmile Range is a region of the Colorado Rockies that contain the mountains surrounding Breckenridge and Frisco. These mountains frame the Blue River Valley and Lake Dillon and not only provide a scenic back drop for everything in the area, but contained within them is a cool ridge that allows for a huge linkup of summits.
The Moonshine Couloir on Mount Arkansas might be the most committing line off a high 13er in the Tenmile/Mosquito Range
Easy access from Highway 91 by Fremont Pass, a gentle approach up the valley, and an interesting couloir that keeps you on your feet all make Mount Tweto a worthy spring ski descent.
A 2018 spring ski of the East Slopes of Mount Democrat.
The days are longer, the temperatures warmer, and the snowpack, though thin, is stablizing. We love the arrival of spring because it signifies the start of our backcountry ski touring season.
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.
