Meadow Mountain 11,632′ St Vrain Trail Glades 2/11/2016 – A Gentle Breeze

Got up for a tour the other day and I have to say, we need some snow. This route reminds me a lot of Butler Gulch. It’s got a long approach trail that is mostly skiable. It has mellow terrain that is mostly safe from an avy standpoint, yet it lack the gnar that Butler […]

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 […]

Mother’s Day Massacre and the Day After – 5/11-12/2014 – Mayuary Powder

Well I’m trying to get the remaining routes done for my next book and have been having a heck of a time with the weather. I was able to get a few done over the last few days around the Montezuma area but any idea of getting up high for big lines has been washed […]
