  • TR: "Spring" in Gothic

    I've now been in Gothic (outside of Crested Butte, CO) as winter caretaker for the Rocky Mountain Bio Lab, snowbound, for 8 months now. As you might imagine, winter is getting a bit old, especially with 22 inches falling in 24 hours last Sunday. Of course, I will never again get the chance to ski 160+ days in a season, let alone 160+ days of spectacular wilderness backcountry, so I've been trying to make the most of it.

    Photos below. Anyone interested in more narrative gloss can check here, here, here, and here, but for those familiar with the area, recent highlights include skiing Mts. Baldy, Bellview, linking up Virginia Basin / Copper Creek, linking up Rustler's Gulch and Copper Creek and skiing the "Camels Humps."

              Your additional narrative account of your adventures is especially great stuff. Intelligently well written and inspiring, plus excellent photos. How fortunate you were to have had a chance to spend the winter at the RMBL. Thanks for all the great posts.

                I'll say. Once I started reading I, "hung on like a lamprey." Thanks.

                        Hey, those are some good looking boots! It's great to know they were put to good use.
