  1. Few Topo pics; McMillan Peak circled, blue line is RT 550 (road up to red mountain pass) pin is where avalanche death occurred previous day. Cal Topo map with slope angle shading. West side of McMillan is relatively safe. East side very avalanche prone and all the way down east side is Silverton ski area. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  2. It is a lodge and a hut next door. We already googled renting space at the hut. $180 per night for 6 people max, short skin in. Here is a link to the lodge. we tried to check them out but the guy in charge was dealing with guests and said we couldn’t go in. https://www.skimag.com/uncategorized/st-paul-lodge-co
  3. I have no idea, I don’t even notice it when I am with her.
  4. @RidgeRacer now if only I could rip down that line........
  5. Our ice climbing guide filled us in about a good ski tour off red mountain pass. She said it was about a 45 min skin in so we thought it was relatively short. She must be super human because by the time we reached the top it was just under 2.5 miles and about 1600’ elevation gain. Gorgeous weather, but cold. Will let the pictures speak for themselves. This is the area people lap, one was enough for us today. Really nice snow conditions. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  6. https://www.ouraynews.com/news/ice-climber-killed-avalanche-south-ouray Not part of the ice park but very close by. Happened yesterday, incredibly sad. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  7. This year we opted for a private guide and arrived in Ouray a week before the Ice Festival. Kind of nice how quiet it was. Starting our hike in. Our climbing area. My friend Shannon always kills it. My friend Natalie is an incredibly fast climber. Here is me totally stressed that I can hardly keep up with her pace belaying her. The climb out, always feel steep.

  8. No. Didn’t want to drive or pay for Telluride. We have a place in mind to backcountry ski, but it’s on a pass and we didn’t want to go with no visibility not knowing the area. Hopefully things will clear up and we will do that a Sunday.
  9. Zero visibility. There are mountains here. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. Short hike before we left Crested Butte this morning. As soon as I stepped off the packed down trail to take a picture I sank. Weather supposed to be pretty bad tomorrow. Lots of wind with the snow so not sure what our day looking like. Ice climbing Saturday. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  11. For Jeff Not nice enough to sit outside, was cold and windy all day. Good snow conditions, about 3” overnight. Ended up getting new boots at lunch so I missed about an hour of the day but the feel sooooooo much better. Supposed to be another 3-6 tonight into tomorrow. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  12. Wow they don’t mess around at these women’s clinics. Skied bell to bell with a short break for lunch. I was able to take my phone out once super quick for a few pics. It they really keep you moving. 3 different instructors said they didn’t like the way my boots fit and after the lesson had me go to the boot doctor near the mountain. The guy was flabbergasted that I had a full size too small. Told him that’s what the boot guy in Boulder does. He is keeping the boots overnight and gonna try and stretch the plastic. We shall see tomorrow. But my feet were absolutely killing me after skiing all day. So if his adjustment doesn’t work I may have to bite the bullet and just buy a new pair. Which sucks cause I just got these last season. But the instructors said the boots were affecting my form so guess maybe I have to. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. Ouray to Silverton is definitely beautiful. First time I did that drive was on the back of the motorcycle and was blown away. And Doug I have only been to Durango once and was not impressed. But it was at the end of a week long motorcycle trip and I was kinda cranky. After 6 days of cool summer mountain temps we rolled into Durango and it was 90 degrees.

  14. I have only skied here once. Doing a 3 day women’s clinic this time. The drive is such a bitch that I am sticking around the area until the 20th. If you put together a PASR trip I would definitely come. I only got the base Epic Pass as I didn’t think I would use Telluride. Regretting that now, probably would have paid for the upgrade just in these 3 days.
