A trip to the Weminuche Wilderness to climb the 13ers Mount Oso and Mount Nebo via Hunchback Pass, Vallecito Creek, Nebo Creek and Rock Lake.
[I originally posted this on Centennialskiers.com, a report from our final Centennial ski trip to Jagged Mountain, #100. We did it!] We climbed and skied Jagged Mountain, our 100th and final ski descent of the Centennial Ski Project. Christy, Chris, and I, along with our friend Pete Gaston, emerged from a four day trip in […]
[I originally posted this on Centennialskiers.com, a report from our ski trip to Pigeon and Turret peaks.] We sat on the tracks and waited. In all of our trips to the Weminuche Wilderness we’ve never seen the train run late. Ideas were floated as to what could explain the delay— rockfall or a mudslide that […]
Since Internet readers have notoriously short attention spans I find it’s usually best to keep a post to a few hundred words and maybe ten photos. So when I came home with 1300 photos from our recent Weminuche Traverse through the San Juan Mountains, I thought the single brief post I put up on the […]
We made another trip into our favorite Colorado wilderness area- the Weminuche. This section of the San Juans has always been special to us, and one that we try to visit regularly. Unfortunately, what makes the rugged, remote area so fun to visit, also makes it a challenge to get to, and we don’t find […]
It’s July 16th, a.k.a. the most important day of the year, and if you haven’t seen Christy and her long red dress and wished her a happy birthday yet, you can still acknowledge the significance of the day at the Aspen Club tennis courts until 8, then at the Sky until about 10 and finally […]
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: 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 […]
