Easter eggs on the summit?
On Easter Sunday, we skied a line off of a local unnamed summit that neither Christy nor I have been to before. Like a lot of 13ers in the state, this 13,500+ foot summit has never been given an official name. Since we were looking to do something novel and fun on Easter Sunday, we decided the mountain deserved a more proper designation. We took the liberty of renaming the peak for the day in honor of the holiday and enjoyed the Southeast Face of Easter Bunny Peak.
It was another beautiful day up high, only made better by the massive brunch down at Sean’s afterwards.
A gorgeous morning, Christy and Sean boot up a steep section into the upper hidden valley that was named, not surprisingly, Easter Bunny Basin.
Heading up Easter Bunny Basin, across what could be Marshmallow Peep Lake, and towards the peak out in the distance.
Climbing the mountain's long east ridge, the ski descent falls down to the right of the photo.
After hopping through the melted out cliff bands on the sunny East Face, Christy followed the valley back down,
until we made it out of the basin, and all the way down to brunch.
Thanks to Sean, Megan, Quinn, and Shari for organizing, and to everyone for bringing their own brunch faves. (Brunch pics courtesy of May Selby)
And thank you Easter Bunny!
