That snow looked so nice and the turns looked even better. Very nicely done guys. Nice write up Ben.....

Great TR Ben     06/19/2009 21:15
That was some of the most fun skiing I have ever done, and certainly the best on a 14er! Get out there and ski this, just be careful of that cornice!

Awesome read! Good call on sticking to original plans. Who knows how much longer you guys would have been out on that East Face?
Good to see Matt was ok in that slide he took.
Incredible pictures!

Looking good!     05/02/2011 14:23
Coverage on Castle is much better than I would have thought. Way to squeeze these two classic ski descents in before summer.

Awesome day, Ben, Jon & Nate. Ben‘s TR really captured the beauty of the day. Nate, way to hang in there, we‘ll get out some more.

I really like the first pic of Castle in your report! Glad Nate is ok. Great report. Lots of snow up there - I‘d like to check these two off next weekend!

Awesome pictures, man. Seems like you had 2 fantastic runs up there. I might have to give those a shot next weekend as well... loving this endless ski season!

I'm Nate. Here's my take on the trip.


Word to the wise: don't use your face to stop a fall. Ice axes tend to be much more effective from what I hear! (url)http://showip.be/url/ffx
