What better way to cap off a memorable winter season in the San Juans than a spring descent of Mt. Sneffels, the monarch of the Sneffels Range.
My partner for the day was Karl, our new friend from Germany who we randomly met and skied with the previous day. We left the truck at sunrise in order to get up and down the mountain before the hot May sun nuked the snow.
What a glorious day to be up high in the San Juans! There’s no denying by now that Mt. Sneffels has to be one of my favorite peaks in the world.
And there’s no better way to enjoy a favorite peak than to ski/snowboard down it!

I am always in awe of the energy and your abilities to do these backcountry skiing adventures.
Thanks Rich! It’s good fun. 🙂
Now that looks ridiculously awesome! Maybe not the postholing up the Col part, but everything else….yah, pretty cool.
Fortunately there were four dudes just ahead, so it was a nice staircase for us!
