Tubbs Flex VRT Snowshoes

Heading into Winter 2022, I decided to replace my Atlas 1030 snowshoes. Stella had hoped that I would select either the Louis Garneau Premiere or Blizzard III snowshoes (since she has the Blizzard II snowshoes and absolutely loves them), but they were not the ones that I wanted. After researching every mountain/backcountry snowshoe available, my … Continue reading Tubbs Flex VRT Snowshoes

Grand Lake Winter Finale

Two weekends ago, we ventured to Grand Lake for our second trip there this winter. While there was plenty of snow, that may not be the case for much longer if the temperatures continue to remain high. The two days we were there, the temperature was about 40ish degrees with a clear blue sky. It … Continue reading Grand Lake Winter Finale

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

Meghan wore Larry's new Tubbs Flex VRT snowshoes since … Continue reading Nederland Snowshoe Day Trip

Gunnison/Crested Butte Winter Adventure

Last weekend we embarked on our Gunnison/Crested Butte Winter Adventure, with great anticipation to explore this beautiful area with our cross-country skis and snowshoes. 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
