Arriving into the basin with all you need on your back
When the days are long, the nights are cold and the peaks are covered under a thick blanket of snow it’s time to traverse the big mountains. Every year we choose a destination from the plethora of beautiful mountains that surround our valley. The Sawtooth, White Cloud, Smokey, Pioneer and Boulder Mountains all hold phenomenal potential for wilderness ski traverses and ski camps. This year we decided to take advantage of perfect melt/freeze conditions and good high elevation coverage to explore the southern Boulder Mountains around the ghost town of Boulder City. While a bit sunburnt, we were not disappointed.
This steep south facing ridge-line held many beautiful lines like this one named “Jose Cuervo”

fun turns back to camp
What a place to call home for a few days!
Nothing like a fire to warm the soul while winter camping
Comfy after the sun set around the fire

many aesthetic ridgelines surround the Boulder Basin with tons of ski lines

A happy crew
Even found some powder on high elevation north shots, like this one dropping into the newly created Boulder-White Clouds Wilderness
The exit is getting a little thin in the low country
