Pettingell Peak 13,553′ South Slopes 4/14/2015

Got up for a quick tour yesterday. We had to take the kiddos to school in the morning so we weren’t expecting much in the way of getting lines done. If the weather held we were thinking the North Couloir. But with the clouds building at the summit it didn’t seem like a good idea […]

Woods Mountain 12,940′ Urad Bowl 4/10/2015

Got up early for a quickie in the neighborhood. Me and Allison met up with Kevin and we headed up to the Ruby Gulch trailhead. The trailhead is recently reopened following the construction at the mine. There is a new parking area just below the trail. Use this and park all the way off the […]

Tabeguache Peak 14,155′ North Gully from Browns Creek 4/8/2015

We headed down the night before and camped near the Browns Creek  trailhead. There’s a ton of sweet camping spots nearby. You know you’re in for a long day when you’re camping in the juniper. The alarm went off at 4am and we were on the trail at 6:15. We were treated to a very […]

Ellingwood Point 14,042′ South Face 3/28/2015

It’s always good to go for it. After heading around the state doing some sales it was time for some skiing. I’ve been itching to get on some big peaks for a while now and I’m finally feeling better after getting struck down by the flu for almost 3 weeks. Met up with YC and […]

Prairie Mountain 10,686′ – East Glades – Ute Pass Storm Laps 2/21/2015

With the big snow in the forecast we decided to head up Friday night and avoid the I-70 shitshow that is Saturday morning. It didn’t work in our favor though, I-70 was closed as we got on in Golden so up 285 we went. The storm was raging over Hoosier Pass and we went and […]

“Golden Bear” 13,010′ Southwest Gully and Coon’s Saddle 1/15/2015

With the early January high pressure came a stabilizing of a lot of the alpine. We decided to take advantage of the refresh this week and get up high to play. It’s not very often that you can  ski a 13er in the winter, from the summit. This line was really fun and with the […]

Mt Bethel North Saddle Gully and Herman Gulch Trees 1/13/2015

After dropping off the kids at school we headed up to meet Gary Fondl and Justin Ibarra from Oz Snowboards along with Justin’s friend Nate, Allison rounded out the crew. The goal was a mellow tour with low 30 degree terrain. If it looked good up high we were going to see but the weather […]
