Yellow Mountain Adventure


Yesterday I hiked up Yellow Mountain to ride fresh powder and experience some Coloradian backcountry. Our guide Antoine has his incredible playground right in his backgarden and he showed us a safe way up and down Magnolia.
This pic was taken pretty much at the beginning of the trip equipped with transceiver and the lot. The Finisterre Bise Vest proofed to be the best bit of clothing I took to Colorado. It is super light but at the same time nice and insulating. Nice is also that it is made out of recycled weatherproof polyester.

This is 3780 meters up. Sadly one of the boys started feeling altitude sickness and didn'at make it to the very top. But the view was still spectacular!


Half way down...

Than the trees came...

Down at the bottom we had to hike back to the road.
