 Anderson Peak Ski descent   

So I decided to add this report, although much after the fact, to find out if amyone has ever skied this before...This is Anderson Peak (Point 13,631) above Anderson Lake. It is located up the Lincoln Creek Rd. near Aspen off of Independence pass, and I can't seem to find anythig at all about anyone ever skiing it. I am sure it is possible that someone may haver skied it, and there is just nothing online (probably the case), but nonetheless I am enticed by the fact that this seems to be a fairly unknown ski line. You can see it from Grizzly Peak which leads me to believe that at least someone must have at least seen it and thought of skiing it, but the fact remains that I can't find any info on it, much less a ski descent.

I want to go get it again, as it was pretty damn fun back in August, and am thinking of going back this week soon ( mon/tues) . I would love to have someone else along for the ride.

on the way up

Halfway up, looking up chute
And looking down from halfway, Grizzly Peak is just out of view to right

Nice remote tripod pic (my mom loves this stuff)
looking up about 1/4 of the way down

So this was my August day for the year, and it is one I won't soon forget. Like I said I want to go back and get this one again this week, especially since the north side of everything up here in Lake County is chocked full of snow, it should be really good.

Any takers pm me.
Also if anyone has info an this ever being skied, please let me know. Curiousity has got a hold on me right now.

Happy trails!!
