Second time up here. It's nice to have the whole mountain to yourself when you can watch the 40-50 ppl hike up Democrat!

Foxy Long Bottoms

First we saw a funnel cloud down the valley (it made the news: http://www.9news.com/story/news/2014/06/08/funnel-clouds-reported-near-fairplay/10199321/). Then thunder, lightning, light snow and graupel. We saw some blue sky so we went for it and made it.

Forgot my hiking boots, there was a dusting of snow on the ground but made it anyway and feel very lucky! Think we also did Loveland that day.

Short and straightforward. Did this during Thanksgiving vacation, but very little snow. Need to come back when there's good snow.

CMC trip. We parked just below Kite Lake, climbed up to Buckskin, then headed over to Loveland Mountain. It was windy and cold, and we had some snow and graupel. The mountains were in the clouds most of the time, so there wasn't much to see from up there.

chicagotransplantNE Slopes Ski  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Apr 29, 2012


Was able to string together a nearly continuous ski descent from the northwestern false summit all the way back to the road minus two short carries. It was a lot more continuous than it looked from the road. The snow got a solid freeze the night before making the morning skin interesting, some spots were incredibly firm. I had to wait to nearly 11.30 for the snow to soften, and even then it was still bulletproof in spots, but I didn't want to let the lower chutes get too soft. There were some nice sections of skiing too, especially lower down.

Headed out with my husband and Angel the dog for this peak and Loveland. Figured we'd do Loveland as an out-and-back from Buckskin... Husband and dog pooped out, so I summited Buckskin then turned back. Bummer. Still, enjoyed having this summit all to myself when the DeCaLiBron was packed with 14er pilgrims.

csmcgranahanWinter ascent  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Mar 6, 2011


Summited with my friend Jake from the winter closure at Paris Mill. The three or so miles to Kite Lake varied from bare to 6" deep. Snowshoes were necessary from Kite Lake to about 13,000' or so.

Date Climbed: Oct 2, 2010


Wanted an easy centennial today - and I got it! I was scared off by the No Parking signs by the Sweet Home Mine, so I parked a bit further up. That meant that I spent a half-hour trying to find an nice way through the willows (dog on leash through that stuff is no fun). Up Loveland to Buckskin (both summits).

Short hike- took more time to drive there from DIA than it took to get up and back down. Beautiful weather, but some wind. I didn't see anyone on my side of Kite Lake despite a full lot there.
