Well, winter is back! Apparently Jack Frost didn't get the memo that it's supposed to be Spring. The unpredictability of Colorado weather up in Vail and the surrounding mountainous areas can make trekking in the back country a potentially hazardous experience, especially this time of year! Storms can move in without much warning, leaving climbers, skiers, boarders, and hikers stranded. Be prepared for the environment your entering! Do your research on weather, snow conditions, elevation gain, terrain.....!!!!! Go with someone, not alone. Play it safe, and have fun! We live here because we are wacky and wild children of nature, born to adventure the unexplored, take chances, and get messy! Just do not underestimate the incredible power of Mother Nature.
