Yet another TR that’s a little bit old. I guess I need to sit at a computer more and ski less. Not. Cool joke from 1991.
My friend Andy headed down from Denver to see how things were down here on the S side of the Elks. Since I had just skied the Green lake chutes the day before and knew a booter was in and the conditions were good, I suggested that we ski in the same area. I wanted to ski the “Tongue” on Axtel, which is a pretty visible line from Mount Crested Butte. I took this photo of Axtel on the following day- the tongue is the double double-fall-lined route in the center of the long summit of Axtel.
