 Finally got it dun   

Well I got the call from Danny for something big. He wanted to do a 14er and he wanted it to be a tough day. Thinking back to the failures of my backcountry skiing, Mt Harvard has always delivered an ass kicking. I’ve failed twice trying to get this peak done. Now it’s finally off my list and I don’t have to go back anymore. It almost wasn’t though. We took 2 sleds for our group of 3 up to the trailhead. Danny rode solo and me and Nate tandemed up the road. It made short work of the 3 miles of road but it’s still a fair amount of work. As we were gearing up for the skin in Nate realized that his binding was broken. Off he went back to the truck to get another pair of skis. When he arrived we geared up quick and hit the trail at the brunch hour of 8:40am. We went as fast as we could... More words and pics at

Having skied Harvard a couple weeks ago, for my first 14er summit of the season, and hitting a wall around 13,500 as the winds picked up, I can relate! Glad it worked out for you this time around. Those are some fat 14er skis Nate has btw.

Looks like you had a great ski day, even with a little weather change in the afternoon. When it comes to skiing, stay thirsty..
