Mt Elbert - Hike & Ski?

Is anybody thinking about skiing the descent of Elbert? I have attached USGS Map showing different routes. Looks like the South Route is probably best in winter conditions. Most likely have to walk to the trailhead though. Or we could consider the Black Cloud route, this route will bag two 14ers instead of only one. The skiing descent option will only make sense if we take the South Trail.

I have downloaded a USGS map and then added the Trail options and Trail notes. I can send this out to anyone who requests.

Is this trip in Febuary or April?

Ultimate frisbee training

On Friday night on December 3rd when Zech and Dave learned how to through the money boom. Once the thrower throws the Frisbee they say "up!" That way the catcher does not even have to look for the Frisbee until he hears up. The thrower also needs to put it way out in front of the catcher so the defender cannot block it. So as long as the catcher is fast, he can run underneath it.
