April Powder!

The calendar may say spring, but we found epic winter riding conditions in RMNP last weekend.  More than a week of storms has hammered the high country with snow totals adding up to multiple feet in favored locations.  Strong winds in the high alpine kept us at moderate elevations, but we were rewarded with some of the best steep tree skiing of the season.  Check out this video of rippin’ telemarker Rob Steinmetz getting the goods and wishing he had brought his snorkel!
 See you in the backcountry.

Spring is the best time to climb and ski many of the classic lines in RMNP!  Join us for a day of guided ski mountaineering and learn the skills to safely enjoy these majestic routes.
