We skied it in similar visibility and winds, but I think we had pow pow on the way down. Nice work though, tickin em off.

Nice job, I wish I had the skills to ski down.

Hey man     2009-06-08 08:02:31
if I can do it, I gotta believe that anyone could...the biggest obstacle is the cash for the ski setup .

Good to get out     2009-06-08 09:46:32
It was good to be out with a ”rising” legend of the ski 14er‘s community. Ben is strong, friendly and a great guy to enjoy a 14 ski with. Thanks for the TR.......

your luck with the weather with these Sawatchers is getting agonizingly redundantly miserable, but I certainly admire your persistence. Maybe its trying to tell you something (climb a 13er).... Nice work.

Good work Ben, sounds like you got a chance to get out and get a couple of peaks skied this last week. Wish I could have gotten out with you but other plans were to be had . Looks like I might have to get over and try Missouri this week.

Doesn‘t look like anyone got stuck in any trees though...

Jordan - Thanks dude, you continue to inspire.

Prakash - Only measly number 18, being 1/3 of the way the true scope and difficulty of this project is really beginning to dawn on me.

Tim - Thanks man for the nice words, likewise dude!

Brian - Two out of three in June might as well have been in January, craziness.

Sam - Thanks man, get up there and get it! How did your ”other plan” end up? I bet it was awesome...

Caroline - I am extremely content not having to head up there again and prolly won't for some time .

It was a good day after all said and done     2009-06-09 10:12:57
benners,
The wind was tough up there. Those wind gusts slamming ice pellets in the face felt like shot gun blasts! But it all turned out well.

It was great to meet and climb with you. I hope we can climb again someday.

Nice to see someone got a report out. Good job my friend.

Nice TR, Ben!     2009-06-09 20:15:59
Brings a new meaning to the ”Christmas in July” slogan!

And thanks for the pic of Belford. It looks more skiable than when I did Mizz... wonder what Oxford is like right now.

Looks like lots of snow up there still. I‘m heading up this weekend. Thanks!
