I'm always happy to meet new ski partners. I've got pretty much every weekend off this season and some weekdays I can call in sick.

I'd also be happy to meet up with some new people.

I'm typically up at Cameron Pass with the dog and the wife but would like to explore the IPW a bit more with other interested folk.
The mountains - whose summits reach or exceed arbitrary thresholds for elevation and prominence - are calling and I must go.

Interested in getting with some like minded souls. Keep me updated on meets/activities..

I'm looking for some partners to ski with as well. I consider my self a pretty strong skier, but have limited back country experience. I've only been bc skiing the past two years. I've taken avy level 1 and have my own gear. Thus far I've stayed on pretty mellow terrain (which is still a lot of fun), but I'd like to try some more adventurous routes this year. I can generally only ski weekends, though sometimes can escape work during the week. Feel free to hit me up if anyone wants to go out this winter.

I'd love to learn but I'm a complete ski mountaineering newb. I'm a decent skier though so that helps.

Also, I nominate "Out Cold" for the ski movie.
You cannot stay on the summit forever; you have to come down again. So why bother in the first place? Just this: What is above knows what is below, but what is below does not know what is above. One climbs, one sees. One descends, one sees no longer, but one has seen. There is an art of conducting oneself in the lower regions by the memory of what one saw higher up. When one can no longer see, one can at least still know. - Rene Daumal

So um, Elle [mountain woman] won the two cat skiing certificates for WP.. I'm really wondering who her best friend is going to be. I'm pretty sure she can't be bought with beer.

I made my first attempt at the backcountry last year and am looking to hit it hard this season. I promise to make up for my lack of experience with exuberance and homemade treats :-D

I'm in Colorado Springs but will travel for the snow. Always looking for people to go with, message me a few days before going out so I can get my gear together and I'll be up for it.

I also tried it once last year, and am diving into it this year, so I'm looking for either other beginners or more advanced folks willing to mentor. I have avy gear, and I'm planning on taking avy 1 in November.

One of my crew snowboards. Long tours he is on his split and shorter tours he takes his resort board with snowshoes.

Snow4rider-I'm in the Springs as well, and Gueza also. I always want carpool friends.
