With the busy summer tourist season in full swing, Iâ€™ve been â€˜making the donutsâ€™, yet somehow still managed to pull off a three-day ski trip into the Wind River Range last weekend.

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.
Randosteve skis the North Couloir of Ellingwood Peak in the Wind River Range. Click all photos for larger images.

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 […]
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 […]

Chris Kroger skis the Northwest Couloir of Mount Helen.
