Dec 5, 2011, Anthracites (CO)
« on: 12/07/11, 07:51 PM »

Been skiing the Anthracites lately.  I could still drive the car to the trailhead on Tuesday, but the road will probably close at the next snowfall.  Not much to report really, but I haven't been here much since leaving the NW, so I thought I'd stop by and say hi.

Hey Zack.

Where in CO is this?  I don't recognize this range.  The Front Range has had a great early season.  Chest and face shots two weeks in a row.  Everyone at work thinks the white strips of death at the resorts couldn't possibly yeild such bounty.  Which, of course, is true.

I do not educate, just smile warmly and wink knowingly.  Looks like you've eeked out a living as well.

The Anthracites are just outside of Crested Butte.  It's one of the standard early season spots around here.  When the road closes it still gets skied a lot via sled access.  I wouldn't say that it has been a great early season here on the western slope, but certainly not bad.
