Cooper Mountain 12,782′ 1/8/2013 Southeast Bowl

Published by at 4:32 PM under 12ers,Colorado,Skiing Trip Reports

Got out and stretched the legs and lungs. It was really good to get up high after being back at sea level for a week over New Years. Hans joined me for the fun. From Peru Creek trailhead we made good time up to Chihuahua Gulch and then up the Southwest Ridge of Cooper. With such a late start we weren’t able to keep going to Ruby but had a decent ski from the saddle between Ruby and Cooper. WE NEED MORE SNOW!!!! ULLR WHAT’S UP?????

The climb was the best part of the day with fun bouldering on the Southwest Ridge of Cooper.

Always a pleasure to hang Hans. Looking forward to the next time :)

Heading up the SW Ridge

Getting sporty on the ridge

Switching over

Gray’s South Bowl

Interesting conditions but when you tele it’s always knee deep

Very interesting

Pano of the exit from hell :)

Such an awesome sunset made the entire trip worth it
