Thinking of making a trip to colorado in April. I need info to plan my co trips this year... i am from houston. Any info will be appreciated.
Long story short, we won't know for a while. There's still a lot of time for snow to fall. Either way, there are some couloirs that should be safe by April. May would be better.
“There are two kinds of climbers: those who climb because their heart sings when they’re in the mountains, and all the rest.” - Alex Lowe
"There have been joys too great to describe in words, and there have been griefs upon which I cannot dare to dwell; and with those in mind I say, 'Climb if you will, but remember that courage and strength are nought without prudence, and that a momentary negligence may destroy the happiness of a lifetime. Do nothing in haste, look well to each step, and from the beginning think what may be the end.'" - Edward Whymper
