[Christy here] It’s been a different kind of winter this year. Not bad, just different. The little snow we’ve received so far has left us with a pretty unstable snow pack, and not-so-desirable ski lines in the backcountry. We haven’t skied any of the peaks were thinking about earlier this fall, have yet to ski […]
Spring is here. At least according to the calendar. And though it isn’t a tradition to try to get out on the first day of the new season, with Christy and I both free this past Sunday, we set our sights on an objective we’ve had for some time- Buckskin Benchmark’s Southeast Face. The 13,370 […]
It was another good one, and not just due to the fact that we had perfect weather, but that we put together a loop of trails and passes we had all seen individually many times before, but had never linked up in this fashion. It came together after Christy, Neal and I were planning a […]
On Sunday, my 37th birthday, Christy and I ran a trail linkup that started at Maroon Lake and finished with a beer and pizza at the Snowmass Mall. Rather than find ourselves in yet another grand birthday outing that’s both physically strenuous and technically elaborate, involving multiple summits and excessive vertical gains, we opted for […]
A spring descent of Kit Carson’s Outward Bound Couloir, a Sangre classic!
You Win Some, You Lose Some The weather forecast worsened each day as the weekend approached and we weren’t sure what to do. Christy, Lissa, Dirk, and I hoped to ski Mount Yale on Saturday and then try for Kit Carson on Sunday. If the forecast was right, the huge spring storm could shut us […]
Just getting caught up here on the backlogged trips thus far- this was a great one we had on Sunday, April 26. Forgoing what was the 4th ‘official’ ski area closing day(after all the season extensions), a rather large group of us tested the limitations of modern snowmobiles and headed up the Maroon Creek Road to ski Willow […]
Route: Southeast Face to Outward Bound Couloir Team: Ted, Chris Davenport We weren’t going to get anything done sitting at home— I agreed with Dav’s thought. It was December and he had a short list of peaks left to ski and when he mentioned the Sangres, well, I needed most of them too, so I […]
