A spring ski descent of Twin Peaks A, just west of the 14er Ellingwood Point, in the Southern Sangres.
Late season ski descents of Mount Champion and UN13736 on the east side of Independence Pass.
We finally made a trip to ski U.S. Grant Peak down in the San Juans up in Ice Lakes Basin.
A spring ski descent of Mount Mamma, 13,646 ft., in the Sawatch Range west of the 14er Mount Antero.
Deep in a valley south of Twin Lakes, CO lies Mount Blaurock, 13,616 ft. It’s an impressive summit, especially for skiing, with a wide northeast face that offers more than a half a dozen potential steep ski lines.
The Moonshine Couloir on Mount Arkansas might be the most committing line off a high 13er in the Tenmile/Mosquito Range
Easy access from Highway 91 by Fremont Pass, a gentle approach up the valley, and an interesting couloir that keeps you on your feet all make Mount Tweto a worthy spring ski descent.
The days are longer, the temperatures warmer, and the snowpack, though thin, is stablizing. We love the arrival of spring because it signifies the start of our backcountry ski touring season.
We finally skied Treasure Mountain. The massive 13,528 foot mountain outside of Marble, Colorado can be seen from high points all around the Elk Range.
We skied Golden Horn, 13,780 ft. last weekend, down in the stunning Ice Lakes Basin area of the San Juans. The valley is a favorite of ours, in the summer months it’s all about the wildflowers, alpine lakes and scrambles on high 13ers.
