Backcountry Ski & Snowboard Routes: Colorado
Featuring Brittany & Frank Konsella
Co-authors of Backcountry Ski & Snowboard Routes: Colorado
Whether you’re an experienced backcountry skier or snowboarder or an intermediate skier looking to ramp up your out-of-bounds expeditions, Brittany and Frank Konsella can point you in the right direction. Authors of the new guide, “Backcountry Ski & Snowboard Routes: Colorado” from Mountaineers Books, the Konsellas have the cred to guide you to the state’s special runs. Both have descended all of the state’s 14ers on skis, with Brittany being the second woman to accomplish that feat.
From the powder hound mecca of the Park Range in the northern part of the state to the rugged cirques of the Indian Peaks in the Front Range to the steep couloirs of the Sangre de Cristo Mountains in the south, the Konsellas have skied them all. Every route in their new book can be done in a single day, but there are also many options for creating casual overnight trips.
Come hear the Konsellas as they share their favorite Colorado routes while offering backcountry skiing tips related to avalanche safety, route timing and planning, and navigation. Whatever your skill level, from easy and moderate tours to steeper, more challenging advanced routes, there’s something here for anyone who loves powder, and is itching to find some new runs this winter.
