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 2018 spring ski of the East Slopes of Mount Democrat.
A five day ski traverse (loop) through the Berner Oberland region of the Swiss Alps with huts, summits, good weather and bad.
A late winter ski of the Northeast Face of Electric Peak, 13,635 ft., one of the more straightforward high summits of the Elk Mountains.
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.

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…
