Featured Descent

Russell Peak East Face

The east face of Russell is technical and can be tight depending upon snow conditions.  It is east facing, which means it gets sun early, and it also involves much steeper lines. The longest descents are from the peak, but they are very committing. Once you are up there, there is no backing out and escape routes are hard to come by should something slide.

Details

Silverton Area has some of the most consistent snow in Colorado. They get it early, and they get it late. Storms love to hit the Silverton/Red Mountain Pass Area. The resort itself is almost a backcountry experience, as they recommend going guided. They also have helicopter access, and unguided days at the resort...........

How to Get There

Western Slope. It is a long drive from the denver area, but once you are in the area, there is relatively easy access to the larger peaks.
