Mt Neva 12,814′ Northeast Slopes – Mt Jasper 12,923′ Snow Lion – A Sweet Corn Solo 6/17/2014

Headed up from Edgewater after the alarm went off at 4am. Made it to the 4th of July Trailhead by about 6 and geared up. The headphones went on and it was super fun zoning out while heading up the trail. Made it to Lake Dorothy and soaked in all the views. After snapping some […]

Cooper Mountain 12,782′ South Gully – Grizzly Peak CDOT Gully Partial – 5/26/2014

So after some bad weather over the weekend we got back after it. We woke up at 4:30 and headed up the CDOT Gully on Grizzly Peak’s Northwest Slopes. The going was pretty easy and the fresh snow was nice but the higher we got the more concerned I was getting. Our goal for the […]

“Little Bear” 12,450′ Sts. John Chute – 5/22/2014 – Sqweaking By

Timing has been the name of the game the last few days and this day was no exception. We got over to the trailhead and geared up. We were off by 4:45 and headed up the Sts John Road across firm snow. Things seemed like they might have frozen despite the warm temps. It did […]

Mt Morgan 12,474′ Corkscrew and Cadillac Variation 5/1/2014 Powfection

After having a great time up on Square Top I headed into Park County and did some recon on some future lines. The roads are snowy down low and will need some time before it’s not an epic getting where I want to go. I headed to hotel 4Runner and got a good nights sleep. […]

Ganley Mountain 12,908′ Northeast Chute – 4/25/2014 Corntacular

After a fun evening in Boulder I headed back home for a good nights sleep. I had made plans though to try and squeeze one in before I had to get the kids from school. We had originally been looking at a steep north facing line but with how hard the snow was I was […]

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 […]

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 […]
