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 […]

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 […]

Butler Gulch 1/9/2014 – A Nice Save After a Plan Failure

After a couple great days up on the pass I got a call from Mir. We talked about our options and decided to go check out a line we saw when we did Tip Top a few weeks ago. The idea for the day was to head up and near Equity Bowl and then dig […]

HAPPY NEW YEAR – Berthoud Pass 1/1-2/2014

After a nice trip back East we arrived back in Colorado on New Years Eve and got to bed early. We checked the weather and saw the 2-4 in the forecast. Our plans to ski in the Adirondacks were shot by the 60 degree temps and rain that fell the week before our trip, so […]

Berthoud Pass 12/5-6/2013 – Powderlicious

With the new snow I thought it might be time to check out the Floral Park zone up at the pass. I had a feeling it would be a little thin but I also thought that the new snow would be deep enough to make it pretty decent. The reports from the areas had me […]
