Winter 14er Recommendation

Postby RockyMountainMustang » Thu Mar 14, 2013 8:39 am

So, I was wanting to get back into hiking 14ers after an extended leave of absence working in Alaska (at sea level! ](*,) ). I don't necessarily want to do repeats, as my time in Colorado in generally pretty limited, and I do not want to go thru avy terrain if possible, as I generally hike solo (it'll be my first 14er in 7mo, so I'll be going pretty SLOW!, expecting to camp at treeline and then keep going the next day). I haven't really done anything in the Sangres, Elks, or SJs, but those aren't really great for the winter, I don't think. Mostly I was looking at Princeton (would going over Tigger Pk eliminate avy concerns?), or Columbia, SE ridge.

Additionally, if anyone has some great snowshoe trails (also in avy safe territory, I don't trust this years snowpack at all), that would be good for training, I'd be happy for any recommendations.
"Security is mostly a superstition. It does not exist in nature, nor do the children of men as a whole experience it. Avoiding danger is no safer in the long run than outright exposure. Life is either daring adventure, or nothing. To keep our faces toward change and behave like free spirits in the presence of fate is strength undefeatable." - Helen Keller
