look at all those dirt tracks     2011-02-04 17:22:16
Thats quite a day Ben, 13 miles huh? I like that picture you took of Pioletski with a dramatic southern Sawatch backdrop. And its always nice to find a snow covered summit. Well done.

On a side note, any interest in Yankee Boy Basin weekend of 5/1-2?


Thanks guys!     2010-04-20 17:22:22
Ben, thanks for writing this up, and it was great to meet you, Mark, and Carl. What a day we had!

Matt, great times, eh?


Thanks, gentlemen!     2010-04-20 19:51:04
For a great spring skiing day. Marc and Carl, nice to meet you. Chris, glad you could get out for this bluebird day.

Brian - I like that pic too. it captures how I feel skiing these lines. Love to join you in Yankee Boy Basin but I‘m not available that weekend, have you asked skier25?


Thanks...     2011-05-02 08:23:28
Matt and Ben for waiting for the rest of us as we knock off our first 14er ski descent of the spring. Good to be back on the horse. Looking forward to getting quicker. Nice TR Ben.

Yeah we definitely ended up with larger stats than we could have had later in the season, but I dare say we ended up skiing more vert than a lot of parties do on Princeton, so maybe it was worth it...

Brian I'll be in touch about your Yankee trip, maybe Carl‘s interested as well?

Matt and Chris, thanks for another fun one!


Another one down     2010-04-22 09:42:23
You‘re just ticking them off fast. Great TR, again!
