So after Wetterhorn I fueled up the body at the Packer Saloon and headed north to meet up with Allison and Gary. I killed some time at Mt Princeton Hot Springs. It felt nice to get some hot water. Then I headed to Salida and had some dinner. I wrote a TR for Wetterhorn and then headed over to meet up with them for the drive to the trailhead.
It was a chilly night and the alarm came way too early. We made decent time up the mountain in the morning and the weather arrived right on time and as forecast. But thankfully we were only a few hundred feet from the summit when it came in. We changed over quickly and skied right off the summit. The snow was perfect corn and was so much fun to ski. Congrats on pushing thru your demons Allison, it’s tough climbing 14ers and it’s even tougher when you have bronchitis. Really impressed with your performance yesterday.
We had one short 50′ down climb to get into the right wing. I think we ended up getting in about 3700′ of ski vertical. 4500′ total vert for the day. Great getting out with you two as always. Enjoy the pics
