Titcomb Basin, 2011

With the busy summer tourist season in full swing, I’ve been ‘making the donuts”, yet somehow still managed to pull off a three-day ski trip into the Wind River Range last weekend. I wanted to go earlier this spring/summer, say 1-2 months ago, but it just didn’t work out with partners and schedules. Luckily though, [...]

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.

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. [...]

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 [...]

Going for the Line.

It’s been almost two years, to the day, since I saw this ski line. It was on a trip to the Wind River Range and I have honestly thought about it nearly everyday since. It’s steep, exposed and narrow, on one of the major peaks in the range and I’m not sure if it’s been [...]

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 [...]

Off to Ski in the Wind River Range

I’m off for another skiing adventure in the Wind River Range. I’ve never been to this area before and I’m anxious to see what kind of fun skiing terrain it may hold. The main objective is to ski the north side of the 13K’ peak located in the lower center of the map below, the [...]

Peter Bakwin Sets New Speed Record On Gannett Peak

For those of you that have climbed Gannett Peak (13,804′), the highest mountain in Wyoming, you know that for most people it tends to be a 3-5 day trip, mainly because of its long approach. But there are some folks out there (there seems to be more and more of them these days) that are [...]

Skiing Fremont Peak's Southwest Face

I’m enjoying the availability of partners and heading back out into the Winds for a few days. I just can’t get enough.  I’ll be back posting on Tuesday. Have a great weekend! -Steve Randosteve skis off of Fremont Peak in the Wind River Range. Photo Chris Kroger. After getting a good night sleep after skiing [...]

Skiing Mount Helen in the Winds

Chris Kroger skis the Northwest Couloir of Mount Helen. After scoping out how much white stuff was still lingering in the Winds River Range while skiing the Spoon Couloir on Disappointment Peak a couple weeks ago, and wanting to end the season on a high note after some busted June trips, I called around and [...]

Back From Mount Helen and Fremont Peak

I’m back from a great 4-day/3-night trip skiing in the Winds with Chris Kroger, with successful descents of the Northwest Couloir on Mount Helen and the Southwest Couloir on Fremont [...]
