Ce que vous allez faire
This experience is a day long back country snow shoe or cross country ski of the Mt. Sherman Basin. The day starts by convening in Fairplay, CO, then traveling up Four Mile Creek Road as far as we can before the road is impassable by vehicles. From there, we will "saddle up" with gear and provisions and start the trek into the basin. Once we have reached the basin below Mt. Sherman, our trip will head up the hill to the ruins of the Dauntless Mine. From there, we will make a traverse to the lakes in the amphitheater of Horseshoe Mountain and circumnavigate them, marveling at the cliff bands above, the surrounding ridges and the pristine white fields of snow. Depending on weather, we will share the lunch I bring for you either on the hill, or double back to Kurt's Yurt, build a fire and warm up below. The day ends with a hike or ski back down the hill to our vehicles. Plan on a couple beers at South Park Brewing afterwards!
As owner of Kurt's Yurt, a long time Colorado Resident, an active alpine and cross country snow skier, a snow shoe-er and hiker, I am not only an enthusiastic participant, but knowledgeable about many pristine areas in the state. It warms my heart and fills my soul to share these places and experiences with my guests. My experience and passion is dedicated to having a safe, fulfilling and positive day with whom I share. Please plan on good conversation, helpful tips, answers to questions, many observations and a day in Colorado which will remain as a wonderful memory when we are done.
Ce qui est inclus
