A spring ski descent of Twin Peaks A, just west of the 14er Ellingwood Point, in the Southern Sangres.
Late season ski descents of Mount Champion and UN13736 on the east side of Independence Pass.
We finally made a trip to ski U.S. Grant Peak down in the San Juans up in Ice Lakes Basin.
Deep in a valley south of Twin Lakes, CO lies Mount Blaurock, 13,616 ft. It’s an impressive summit, especially for skiing, with a wide northeast face that offers more than a half a dozen potential steep ski lines.
A ski descent of the Northeast Couloir on Willow Peak, 13,336 ft.
The Moonshine Couloir on Mount Arkansas might be the most committing line off a high 13er in the Tenmile/Mosquito Range
The big East Face of Snowmass Mountain is one of the best 14er ski descents in the Elk Mountains.
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.
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.
Last year I had the opportunity to be a part of an amazing mentorship program that the Aspen Middle School conducts annually with their 6th-grade students. I was approached by an impressive 11-year old girl who asked if I would be willing to participate in the program as her mentor for ski mountaineering.
