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…
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 holiday season is here again, and as much as it’s fun to see town so busy, it can be intense at times. We’ve been lucky that for the past six years we’ve been able to escape the madness for a night and head up to a hut for Christmas Eve with some friends.
Snowy mountains that rise out of the fjord, ski lines that go all the way to the water, boat-accessed terrain, endless daylight, expensive beer– when you ask a skier to define Norway those are a few of the thoughts you often hear. And they all sound pretty enticing, well, with the exception of the last […]
I recently joined two friends on a last minute trip to the Lindley Hut and we had two incredible days touring on and around the nearby peaks and couloirs. I thought I would share an assortment of photos and let them speak for the adventure.
The weather was ideal and the avalanche stability had improved, dropping to between moderate and low. It was a perfect weekend to join our friends at their cabin up in the Ragged’s above Marble. Every time we visit here it’s a great time. There’s just so much terrain to see and ski, some of which […]
We were hoping to get some miles in on a tour that didn’t feel too aggressive considering all the new snow that fell recently. So Sean, Christy, and I put together a pretty fun loop outside of Ashcroft that allowed us to get up high and catch some views, ski a bit, and all while […]
At the start of every new season we like to set some goals, and we’ll lay out a checklist of outings and activities we hope to complete. The goals aren’t always written down and we might not always get to every one, but we try. Highland Bowl days, backcountry days, ski mountaineering days, rando races, […]
It’s a tradition of ours to escape the holiday season craziness in Aspen and head up to a hut on the night of Christmas Eve. This year we went to Tagert Hut, up in Pearl Basin above Ashcroft.
Tim phoned to say that he and some friends were heading up to McNamara Hut for the night, and that I should meet them up there. I was a bit busy with things, but since every hut trip I’ve been on has been a certifiable great time, I thought I should try to join them.
