The first time I have been snowmobiling in probably 5 years! Gorgeous day snowboarding via snowmobile above Leadville around Turquoise Lake and up in the mining district on the East side of town. Much lower traffic areas than the typical snowmobiling destination of Vail Pass.
Grabbed some beers and eats at Periodic Brewing after.
Only a few spots of exposure to potential slide paths that cross CO-4 on the South side of the lake.
Gorgeous meadow South of Uncle Bud’s Hut before we tracked it out.
No real slide exposure, just watch out for the old mines. Groomed trail map.
3 slides above treeline on the South and SE faces of Little Evans Gulch.
