D’oh!

Don’t you hate it when you hike into the Wind River Range to camp for a couple nights and climb a 8-11 pitch route, and then realize when you are at the base of the climb the next morning, that you left all the slings back at camp? Doh!!! Well, at least the views were […]

Time To Put A Fork In It?

A fork in the 2010-11 skis season that is? Well, maybe…but my ski seasons just don’t seem complete anymore without at least one trip into the Wind River Range. More photos to come. Sunset in Titcomb Basin, July 9th, 2011. Click photo for larger image.

Some Baptiste Lake/Mount Hooker Photos

Just thought I’d share some pictures from the trip to Baptiste Lake and Mount Hooker in the Wind River Range last weekend. For those that don’t know, Baptiste Lake (10,828′) sits on the boarder of the Wind River Indian Reservation and the Popo Agie Wilderness, and is most easily accessed by the white man with […]

Mount Hooker-Boissonneault-Larson

I’m back from a nice relaxing and sunburn filled trip to the Winds, Baptiste Lake and Mount Hooker. Through the power of the internet and some sleuthing, I believe we watched Pat Goodman and Dave Sharratt climb (or at least attempt to climb) the Boissonnneault-Larson or Third Eye route (VI 5.10+ A4) on Mount Hooker.  […]

Off To The Winds…Again

I’m off to a new area for me in the Wind River Range today.  Though this peak has an easier 3rd class route to the top, it also has five wilderness Grade VI climbing routes on it.  The topo lines are perplexing for this peak when you look at in on a map.  Normally, one […]

Deep Lake and Haystack Peak

Temple Peak (one my ski hit-list) and Deep Lake in the Wind River Mountains. I’m back from a fun trip camping at Deep Lake and climbing Haystack Peak in the Wind River Mountains. Now it’s off to SLC for the Summer Outdoor Retailer for a couple of days. I’m not that hard of a rock […]

Titcomb Basin 2010: North Couloir, Ellingwood Peak

Randosteve skis the North Couloir of Ellingwood Peak in the Wind River Range. Click all photos for larger images. As we slept, a little bit of weather rolled in throughout the night, dropping graupel and rustling the mega-mid every so often, enough to warrant busting out the ear-plugs in order to get some good rest.

We left camp for the South Couloir of Fremont Peak (13,745′…the third highest peak in Wyoming) as the sun hit the tent around 7:30am. It was a nice, cool morning and the snow had […]

Titcomb Basin 2010: The Trek In

Randosteve excited to be getting close to Fremont Peak. Click all photos for larger images. There had been lots of planning, work schedule changes, weather watching and rounding up of partners involved with putting this ski trip to the Wind River Range together. One would think that skiers would line up to ski the amazing […]

Back From Titcomb Basin in the Winds

Sunset over Titcomb Basin in the Wind River Range, Wyoming. Click photo for larger image. Well…I’m back from an amazing 5-day adventure skiing in the Wind River Range. The trip was full of arduous trekking, incredible vistas, intense sun and of course, some awesome skiing. We went 2 for 3 on this trip and succeeded […]

Off To The Wind River Range

How many couloirs do you see on this Wind River peak? Click photo for larger image. Finally, the weather forecast is looking good for more than just a few hours and today I am off to ski in the Wind River Range of Wyoming for five days. It may be a little soggy on the […]

Skiing Wind River Peak…and Off to the Sierras

Randosteve skis Wind River Peak with the Cirque of the Towers in the background. Photo: Brian Ladd. Click most photos for larger images. I’m not sure how or when, but at some point in the past couple of years, Wind River Peak made it onto my skiing hit-list. At over 13K’, it is the highest […]

Back From The Winds

Randosteve admires the terrain above Deep Creek Lakes near Wind River Peak. Just got back from the Winds River Range last night. We cut our trip short by one day, and considering the deluge of thunderstorms we drove through on our way back to Jackson last night, I’m glad we did. The trip was great […]
