Route: Southwest Couloir Team: Christy, Ted Excited by a prospect of a second new descent after the route we just completed on Sunlight, we transitioned back to uphill mode and began up Windom Peak. Climbing to the side of the Widowmaker, we were up top quick, with a big decision. The common ski line on […]
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 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: 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 […]
