 Sleepless on Princeton   

Princeton looks like a solid choice for Memorial Day if you're still looking for a good challenge. The snow is fairly solid. We ran into 4 skiers and it looked like they had a great time, so skiing is still very possible as well. It was nice running into some other members on the way down. Nice to see you guys again!

Great photos to go with the report. I really would like to get Princeton in this summer. I've always thought it was one of the prettier looking 14ers. (Although not as impressive once you are on it.)


Yea!     2011-05-25 06:27:08
It has kind of haunted me as well... saw it just about every weekend in the past 3 years... finally was time to knock it out. It would be a nice hike in the summer, I think, despite what others say about the scree and nastiness of the route.


Nice chatting with you guys...     2011-05-25 13:28:24
I was the solo skier (with my dog companion, Friday) you guys ran into on the ridge during your decent. Glad to see you made it down okay. Did your buddy make his flight?


great!     2011-05-25 14:48:00
Loved the pictures!


Yeah     2011-05-25 18:35:17
He made his flight. I was going to add that to the report, but forgot hehe

Good seeing you up there Matt. The ski was nice, plenty of rocks though. We all had a good descent. And yes I have done Princeton in Summer and now with snow. It is 100000x better with snow.

Is a very bad thing! Haven't you seen my dent?! Haha. Just kidding! Great pics! I think by the time I live in BV you can send people to my house because it will be a Matt's art gallery! Now rest up and feel better!!!
