Skeiðsfjall 950m Myriam’s Gully – 4/9/2014

After a long flight to Iceland we rented a Subaru Forester from SADCars and drove north thru crappy weather to Akureyri. After restful night at the Backpackers we set out in the morning for Dalvik nd hopefully some decent skiing. We didn’t know exactly what to expect so armed with our gear and a bunch […]

Mt Morgan 12,474 Corkscrew Gully Bail 3/12/2014 – Cadillac Pow

I love the Montezuma Zone of the Front Range. It’s like a sector that’s been frozen in time. The peaks around town offer up some decent sized vertical and there are sheltered options that can safely be skied in winter. Todays goal was to get into more of a spring line. The Corkscrew on Mt […]

Mt Victoria – J Chute Trees 3/11/14 – Lots O’Laps

After Silverheels I was worked. I drove to Fairplay and took care of some book business the headed for Summit. After some pizza at the Boat Yard I made a few calls and put together a plan for the next day. Then I headed up Tiger Road and camped for the night. It was good […]

Mt Silverheels 13,822′ Southeast Gully Via Silverheels Creek 3/10/2014

When I got home from Hippie Trees I was spent from the drive and looking forward to getting a rest day. Then I got a call from Gary and he brought up the idea of skiing Silverheels. We were hoping for some clear warm weather that would soften up the snow and give us our […]

Loveland Pass – Hippie Trees 3/9/2014 Still Fresh

After Quandary we headed to Cottonwood Hotsprings for some water. It had been too long since we’d went there. They finally have the hotel back open after the fire and rebuilding process. It was nice to soak the body after a visit to such a high place. We got a room in town and slept […]

Quandary Peak 14,265′ East Ridge and Bowl 3/9/14 – Great to get up high :)

Well after we finished WalMart chutes me and Gary went to Prost and had a beer and some sausage and tried to figure out what to do. Allison wanted to ski but 70 was probabily going to close really soon. I ended up heading back to Edgewater for the night which I think was the […]

Coin Slot and WalMart Chute 3/7/2014 Powderlicious

The roads have been terrible this year. This morning was no different. The new snow wreaked havoc on I70 once again and I was running late as always. No worries though as Gary’s friends from Golden were also in the same predicament. We finally met up at the Frisco Main trailhead and geared up for […]

Geneva Mountain 12,335′ Francis Creek to South Ridge 2/16/2014

With the mountains shedding their new load all over the place it seemed like a good idea to have a mellow day. We also got a late start, wanted to avoid I70 and still get some exercise. The original plan was to ski Geneva Basin but the road was impassable and we didn’t want a […]

Trelease 2/11/2014 Putting UPS and FedEx To Shame – Delivering the goods

Some days are tougher than others. I’m a divorced dad and some weekends when I have the kids it’s pretty tough. Like when it snows 5 feet and all I can do is watch the pics go up on Facebook. But I always know in the back of my mind that I’ll get some goodness. […]
