Each year CMS guides get together to share guiding skills, ski technique, adventures in the mountains, seek out some fun lines and enjoy amazing skiing. This year the crew headed to the southwest corner of Colorado to Red Mountain Pass in the San Juans.
With a long spell of high pressure, we were unsure what we would find. Day one we focused on sussing out conditions, stability, beacon drills (companion rescue) and building improvised shelters. As each day progressed, we pick longer tours that required advanced tour plans, challenging route finding, a variety of terrain, and aspects with incredible powder turns.
Now that we’ve returned to the Front Range the snow has begun to shape up for better local skiing. Our guides have been busy with our avalanche training programs each weekend, ice course, and mountaineering objectives. We’re looking forward to February and more skiing in Rocky Mountain National Park.
