Following is a trip report from our 2014 Alaska Ski Mountaineering Course.  The participants – Chris, JP, Zack, & Chelsea – accomplished numerous high level ski tours while learning the ropes of ski mountaineering.  By the end of the week, they were using their new skills to lead the group through steep, complex climbs and descents in the heart of the Chugach Range near Valdez, Alaska.

We had a fantastic Mt. Rainier climb last week with every team member making it to the summit!  We climbed the Disappointment Cleaver route from a high camp at Ingraham Flats.  During our ascent we had excellent snow conditions, good weather, and our climbing teams implemented their newly learned climbing skills with precision and finesse.  Following are a few photos from the trip.

The Colorado College Outdoor Recreation Club took hut skiing to a new level in February with pillow drops, log hits, and all around incredible skiing! This video is from a Blue Lakes Hut Trip we did with this crew over President’s Day weekend.  A big thanks to guide Mike Bromberg for his artistic talent in compiling this short film.
