Colorado Springs

A fantastic dump of new snow has infused the highcountry with much needed new snow.

Avalanche warnings are in effect for many of the areas outside of any control. Skiing of course will be good, limit it to safe areas of exposure, low angle terrain and watch out for terrain traps below, and "hang fire" from above, if in doubt, don't ski it...wait until its had time to settle. If you travel in the B.C. be prepared for any and all conditions, wear and know how to use an Avalanche beacon, carry a probe, and shovel, and be conservative.

Go to the Colorado Information centers website for more up to date information.


Winter Guides training

Just finished a fantastic weekend of skiing with the new and old guides of PPAS. We encountered good snow, and overall found the snowpack to be well set-up, this was great news.

Were ramping up for our first AIARE L-1 this weekend, and ski guiding the rest of December.

This photo was taken by Eric Supancic of Colorado Springs.
