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? 

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.

It was a very cold weekend, so we had elected to start our adventures a little later than usual each day, around noon. And that also had been a special weekend because we used our brand new … Continue reading Grand Lake Winter Weekend
