Third time on La Plata was the charm for us as well. It really didn't want to give up the summit easily! Grats on the summit and ski!

Good to see you guys are still going out and getting after it. Some of us gave up skiing a few weeks ago.

Glad you all enjoyed the tr. Yeah Manky we have been still getting after it. However, La Plata may have been one of the last snowbaord descents of the season. Unfortunately the snow is finally going. There are still a few lines still in but the last few 14ers I have left to climb are not rideable anymore so I am beginning to shift gears. Planning on the Conundrum Couloir next weekend, then I am hanging the board up for atleast a month in favor of some ridge scambling and summer activities. I will get out on a glacier a couple more times this summer but that will be about it. We should try to ski some 14ers next season though. I think both of us have some similar objectives...
