Would a big winter weather forecast force the cancellation of a holiday hut trip?
After ringing in the new year, we decided to head out on a ski tour to Ashcroft, a favorite zone near Aspen.
Snow has been falling steadily all season. The backcountry has been slowly filling in and we’ve been getting out on some of our favorite winter ski tours when we can.

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…
We escaped the busy-ness of Aspen during the holidays and spent Christmas Eve up at Green-Wilson Hut, one of the Braun Huts above Ashcroft.

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.
