2023 Winter Adventures: What’s Going On? 

Some of you may be wondering why BaseCamp@GrandLake has not posted anything for winter adventures, especially considering the abundance of snow. Normally, we travel extensively in the winter but this season has been quite different. We have only taken one winter trip thus far, to Jackson Hole the week prior to Christmas, and it ended … Continue reading 2023 Winter Adventures: What’s Going On? 

Aspen Winter Adventure II

This past weekend we ventured to Aspen for our second trip this winter season. It is logical to think that we would have done something different from our earlier trip there, but we ended up doing pretty much the same thing. That being the case, this post will be much shorter than that of our … Continue reading Aspen Winter Adventure II

Jackson Hole/Alpine Winter Adventure

I know most people associate the area with Alpine skiing, which is king in the western states, but the area also … Continue reading Aspen Winter Adventure

While this had been our very first visit to Crested Butte, we had visited the Black Canyon of the Gunnison National Park in April 2021. Last winter, we had a trip … Continue reading Gunnison/Crested Butte Winter Adventure

Frisco Cross-Country Ski Day Trip

Sunday, we ventured to Frisco to cross-country ski on the Temple Trail/Blue River Bikeway. In the warmer months, this is a fully paved biking/walking trail that we have enjoyed many times, most recently this past fall. However, this had been our first time cross-country skiing on it, and we were surprised that we had never … Continue reading Frisco Cross-Country Ski Day Trip
