Skiing peaks right off the top in May in Colorado: doesn’t get any better than this!
With snow conditions at their peak, and some cooler weather mixed in with some bluebird days, dating from the 19th when I skied North Maroon with Chris and Ted, I have continued on to ski South Maroon, Eolus, Sunlight, Windom, and N Eolus, and spent time on Pyramid too on two separate days bringing the total to 48 peaks.
I was able to get South Maroon done last Sunday the 22nd of May.
Then it was on to the train and a date with the Chicago Basin 14ers up from Needleton. I went for the proverbial 4-Banger and skied all four peaks on Tuesday the 24th.
After some low pressure I’ll get back out and ski the Wilson Massif and try to get these peaks done by mid-June!
Cheers- Trip reports will get added as time allows.
