Mike has completed almost all of the Colorado 14ers! This is a local favorite for him. A very direct 3000 foot gain in elevation. Please be sure you are hydrated before attempting this as a flatlander! :)

Winter park and Mary Jane are Somah’s favorite ‘close to the Front Range’ hotspot. Skiing is awesome, the tubing is wonderful and if you keep going west you can connect with Hot Springs as well as snowmobile action in Grand Lake.. And you get to avoid the Eisenhower tunnel traffic!
