Route: Northwest Couloirs Team: Christy, Ted The morning began much like it did for Eolus, the day before. We were moving fast. Once we reached upper Needle Creek, we headed east towards Sunlight Peak and Windom Peak. Being Memorial Day Weekend there were others around and the boot tracks ran in several directions. There were […]
Route: Southwest to East Couloir Team: Christy, Ted Don’t turn down the chance to head into the Weminuche Wilderness, it’s so cool in there. We had both been down there several times by now and Christy wanted to go for the Needle Creek 14ers on skis. Perfect, I thought, because I needed to redo South […]
Route: West Face Team: Ted, Christy, Dirk Bockelmann Take two. I skied “on” Snowmass Mountain back in 2002, but couldn’t claim it as a summit descent. So after Pikes Peak last week, I rallied Dirk and Christy for what has become our annual Memorial Day Weekend 14er ski trip and we headed over to Marble. […]
Route: Northwest Face Team: Ted, Dirk So far so good, we got El Diente and Mount Wilson the day before, and with another clear and cold night we should be able to shoot for two more summits today. One of them, Wilson Peak, might not be skiable off the summit, at least 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: West Face Team: Christy, Ted In a week we were headed to Europe to ski the Haute Route, the classic ski trip connecting the towns of Chamonix and Zermatt. So in an effort to prep for the tour, we decided to head to Lake City for a weekend trip. We made our way there […]
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 […]
Route: South Face to Chihuahua Gulch Team: Ted, Christy After skiing the northeast side of Grays Peak, Christy and I made our way back up to the Grays/Torreys saddle, and then to the summit of Torreys. It was pretty nice up there, Christy was especially pleased to be there as this was our first double-summit […]
Route: East Couloir Team: Ted, Chris Carmichael After a full down day in camp due to weather, the next morning was just perfect. Since our day on Sunlight and Windom, about six inches of snow had fallen. Chris and I headed up towards South Eolus, Dave would sit this one out. It was easy skinning […]
