My first ski descent of the North Face of North Maroon Peak back in 2005.
A spring ski descent of Wetterhorn Peak on a hot day that delivered a learning lesson.
Route: North Face to Trough Couloir Team: Ted, Christy, Dirk Bockelmann, Sean Shean Longs was the best. If I had to pick one day that stuck out as my favorite to date, it would be Longs Peak. Winter snow on the steep North Face was part of it, success after an uncertain and very long […]
It’s amazing what a good day you have up in Montezuma Basin in October. Since Dirk and I were headed out on a climbing trip to Ecuador in a week or so we wanted some time up high. A bluebird day with easy skiing snow greeted us.
Route: Northwest Face Team: Ted, Dirk So far so good, we climbed and skied El Diente and Mount Wilson the day before, and with another clear and cold night we were able to shoot for two more summits the next day. One of them, Wilson Peak, might not be skiable off the summit from the side […]
Route: North Face Team: Ted, Dirk Bockelmann After descending El Diente, we traversed as far as we could towards Mount Wilson and began climbing. Switching off trail breaking duty in regular intervals, we made pretty good time up the very direct North Face. This peak, like El Diente, warranted another visit. At the top of […]
Route: North Face Team: Ted, Dirk Bockelmann After some pretty good days so far this spring (we were just in the Sangres), and with a week remaining before work starts up, I figured I should keep charging. Dirk was free as well, so we decided to head down to the San Juans with the three […]
Route: South Face Team: Christy, Ted After coming off our big push in the Sawatch the weekend prior, we wanted to check out the Sangres. There was enough snow down there still to ski, but it was going fast. We made the drive to towards Alamosa and then up the horrendous Como Lake Road to […]
Route: East Face Team: ted, Dirk Bockelmann, Amos Whiting With just a few days before a trip to Chamonix and mere hours since getting home from skiing Uncompahgre Peak with Christy, I figured I might just take it easy when Dirks name came up on my caller ID. Not long after that, Dirk, myself, and […]
Route: East Face Team: Ted, Jeremy Barbin Snowmass Mountain has always been a favorite. Part of its allure lies in its remoteness, the fact that you can only really see it from other exciting locales. Backpacks, peak climbs and backcountry ski tours bring the mountain into sight, when I see it I must be doing […]
