After ringing in the new year, we decided to head out on a ski tour to Ashcroft, a favorite zone near Aspen.
A spring ski descent of Mount Mamma, 13,646 ft., in the Sawatch Range west of the 14er Mount Antero.
A six-day hut and ski traverse through the Otztal region of the Tyrloean Alps.
A group of us were lucky enough to have had an opportunity to ski out of Bella Coola for a few days. Because it’s so inaccessible, the only practical way to get up into these mountains is to use Bella Coola Heli Sports.
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 five day ski traverse (loop) through the Berner Oberland region of the Swiss Alps with huts, summits, good weather and bad.
At 10,839 ft. Hahn’s Peak isn’t a particularly high summit by Colorado standards, but it’s position among the neighboring peaks of the Mount Zirkel Wilderness give it a fairly impressive presence. And it makes for a really fun backcountry ski outing.
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.
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.
