This photo is from a recent expedition to the Penninsula of Antarctica. Want a true adventure, try skiing and climbing on the Peninsula of Antarctica.

This is in one of my favorite places on the planet, the Gerlache Straits.

More sunshine has returned to the state, and in this area warming trends have affected the snowpack.

I skied nearly 4000 vertical feet Sunday in Rocky Mountain National Park, under good snow. I dug a profile pit down 133 cm, all test revealed good net results, it was a NE aspect. That was for that small area, that is not to say it's good elsewhere.

I have added 2 Level II AIARE courses for the year, check the website for dates. You must have done a L-I to qualify for these courses.

Contact us with any questions.

This photo is of John Thorne and his two boys Joey and John Jr. This summit shot happened in March 2005.

Snow has steadily crept into the mountains in this part of the US. I was out yesterday evaluating snowpack for the begining of our Avalanche courses. What I found was fairly good skiing snow, on terribly dangerous snowpack. It will be a good learning enviroment no doubt, but danger does loom in the backcountry.

If your intrested in an Avalanche course for 2006 contact us for dates (719-448-0800) or consult the SEI website. We will be offering 7 courses in conjunction with Colorado College.

Enjoy the snow and early season skiing.
