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!

VIDEO - Castle and Conundrum Peaks

Hey everybody!

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.

VIDEO - Join me on the summits of some Colorado 14ers!

Hi all!

The Decalibron Loop is a trail in the US state of Colorado. It is a series of FOUR 14ers (a mountain with an elevation over 14,000 ft) - Mt. Democrat, Mt. Cameron, Mt. Lincoln, and Mt. Bross.

Here is the video I made of my trip around Decalibron! As I mentioned in ...

Missouri this Friday

Anybody have any beta on the conditions around the collegiate peaks? I'm thinking about hiking Missouri this Friday. Anybody that is interested is more than welcome to join us Thursday night at the camp site and Friday. We are two slow flattlanders, so you're probably best on your own during the climb. Or, you could give us a 2 hour head start and we'll see you on the summit ridge. I'm kind of thinking the ...
