Climbed and skied Golden Bear from Loveland Ski Area today. Parked at a lot adjacent to the exit ramp for US6 from EB 70 but there were several cars parked outside the gate when I got back. Crossed under 70 using the skier tunnel and then booted up The Face run. After that, was able to skin the rest of the way to the summit. Ascended chair 8 lift line and then traversed over to the east ridge. Winds got nasty at that point. Approx three hours to summit. Began descent just south of summit and continued down the Awesome run back to the empty Ginny Lee Cabin for a victory beer and snack. Didn't see a soul on the mountain, not sure where the owners of the gate cars were. Highly recommend this one, still plenty of snow up there.
