Bear Trap Fork- 1.10.2015
I have hiked this area in the summer, but have never visited Bear Trap Fork in the winter. We made an early start up the fork with partly cloudy skies. The morning had mild temps from the recent high pressure, it has sopped in all the valleys with inversions. We made our climb through the meadows and aspens as we moved up through the basin. After winding up through the trees on variable condition snow, we eventually made our way to the top of the drainage. We decided to climb the glades in the basin, as the snow up high was still soft and powdery. We had a fun run to the bottom, then ran the trees and meadows on the way out. It was a really fun day up in this area, one that I would love to return to. Enjoy the small video edit I put up and Pray 4 Snow!
