TR: Axtel on 3/2

A mild snowstorm hit Crested Butte on Saturday night. It only snowed a couple of inches in town. The resort had been baked from warm temperatures the day before, so we knew a couple of inches would amount to dust on crust… which wouldn’t be good.

So, backcountry was in order. We headed for Axtel, and found some fantastic goods there.

It felt great to be skinning again! It had been far too long since my last backcountry outing! We made great time to the area where we skied; only 1 hr 40 minutes, when normally it takes 2.5 hours or so.

Our line:

This shot would have been most excellent had my fingers not been so cold that I couldn’t get the camera to focus!

What a great day out! Stay tuned because we have great plans for this weekend 🙂
