4-6 Day of Bonding


My oldest son will graduate H.S. this year and I want a 4-6 day Back Country hike through the Mountains. One that routes through a summit or two (don't have to be 14ers) and has wildlife possibilities, places to camp along the water and maybe some fishing. Basically a place to strengthen our already strong bond before he starts the next chapter in his life..

We day hike every summer in CO or NM, ...

Extended or Partial 4 Pass Loop

Hi All,

Looking for advice on an extended or partial versions of the 4 pass loop. The reports of massive crowds has me worried.

I've read a little about the Capitol Creek Circuit, but wondering if there are other options out there.

Snow report for Kenosha Pass

I'm looking to go snowshoeing from the Denver area and wonder if there is enough snow at the top of Kenosha Pass to warrant the use of snowshoes here at the beginning of January 2017. Happy New Year!

Seeking Steamboat Springs, CO, suggestions

Hi all! I'll be traveling to Steamboat Springs at the end of January and was wondering what else there is to do besides skiing. I'll be staying in a condo at the Bear Lodge at Trappeur's Crossing. I found a great deal! Anyone been there?

I'm open to any suggestions on where to eat, what to see, and what to do! Thanks!

I am extremely excited to bring you this week's video: Castle and Conundrum Peaks! We did this trip on Sunday, October 30th for a Halloween weekend extravaganza. This was BY FAR, my favorite 14er group that I've done to date. We were faced with whiteout conditions on the ascent of Castle, thigh deep snow in places, and lots of wind. All of these challenges made ...

VIDEO - La Plata Peak

Hello everyone!

CLICK HERE TO WATCH THE VIDEO https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RkGi3J2PNT0

This week's video involves makng my way up La Plata in the midst of very high winds. Alhough it was pretty tough postholing through the snow fields above 13,000 ft, the views made it all worth it at the top. I will definitely be making it out this way again soon to hit up the other Sawatch mountains.

Hope you enjoy the video!

Route for Whetstone in Crested Butte

Has anyone hiked Whetstone? There's no official trail but apparently there are a few access points from which you can summit. Any tips would be appreciated.

Uncompahgre Peak Mid-October Conditions

Finally got some time off this weekend and I've been wanting to summit Uncompahgre. Any idea if it will be snowy/icy? I'd like to be able to see the trail. Someone posted a trip report last week on the 14er website and it looked pretty good. Also, where is the trailhead on Nellie Creek road? I've heard the road is kind of a wreck so I'm more nervous about the drive.
