TR: Out in the Backcountry Again (12 Dec 2010)

(Last Updated On: December 13, 2010)

On Sunday, Frank and I were joined by our friend Zach for some skiing in the backcountry. It had been two weeks since I’d ventured into the Crested Butte backcountry. With a few recent storms, I was curious what the backcountry had to offer.

As always, the views are wonderful.

High winds prevented us from venturing above treeline and made us re-evaluate our line choice.

The snow was wind-affected, but we were able to find some good turns anyway. Zack.

The high winds have had a big affect on our snowpack lately. Still, there’s good skiing to be found!
