Forest Lakes Approach Backcountry
Oggi mi sono messo d'accordo con un amico Italo/Americano di Boulder, faremo qualcosa di diverso e tranquillo, abbiamo scelto una gita vera di Backcountry, quindi lungo sviluppo, poco dislivello e lungo Boot pack. Partiamo dal East Portal Trailhead al Moffat Tunnel nel James Peak Wilderness area, da qui facciamo un portage per...

Grays 4352m & Torreys Peaks 4349m the king of the Front Range
Altra uscita solitaria, parto da Silverthorne alle 5:00, direzione i70 uscita Bakerville, da qui non so le condizioni della strada se posso avanzare fino al posteggio avanzato, altrimenti mi toccano 5km in piu. Al posteggio di Bakerville ho dubbi su quale strada prendere, la via sarebbe la Stevens Gulch Road, ma a me sembrano...

Loveland Ridge and Peak "with no name"
Dopo il Grizzly sono solo le 8:45, in 5 minuti arrivo a Loveland pass, la prima idea era di fare un bel 4000 semplice senza troppo dislivello e pendenza l'obbiettivo il Mount Sniktau a 4022m, ad ogni modo la facciata nord presenta delle linee di discese ma la salita è praticamente senza neve, quasi tutti partono sci in spalla e...

Do they make crampons for dogs?
Since I'm still employed in Switzerland, I get the Swiss Holidays off at work even though I live in California. This has advantages and disadvantages. One of advantages is that on those Swiss Holidays almost nobody has the day off in the US and therefore, it's hardly ever crowded, neither on the roads nor in the mountains. If you...

Woods Lake a nice alternative start for a ski tour to Round Top
As you might have noticed by now, Round Top is one of my favorite goals in winter and summer. So far my starting point for this tour has always been Carson Pass. For back-country ski tours the section from Carson Pass to Winnemucca Lake is somewhat sub-optimal. The main reason is that this part is rather flat with only little gain...

Plan B: Thimble Peak - a worthy alternative to the original plan
Whenever I drive to Carson pass from east during the winter, I see the nice east facing slopes of Red Lake - and Stevens Peak, which look very inviting for skiing. David Wonser praises Red Lake Peak's east face on his website as "some of the best corn skiing terrain in Carson Pass". And that's exactly what my plan was for the day....

Relay - and Incline Peak - a very scenic backcountry ski tour
Same setup as last week with the difference that I wanted to ski a little more. Almost the same start, just "the other" pull-out on Highway 431 at Incline Lake. My goal today was Relay Peak via the west ridge, ski down to Ginny Lake, skin up to Incline Peak and then back to the car via the same route as last week to Incline Lake....

Incline Peak
After a very slow start to the winter 2017/18 with very little precipitation, the Sierra Nevada received a lot of snow in the last weeks to reach an almost average snow-pack by now. This finally gave me the chance to open the ski tour season. This tour had to be short and sweet for many reasons and was also meant to find out what...
