Many years ago PVS ran annual trips to Mont Sutton, Canada. Those trips became legendary for cold & camaraderie -- not to mention wild parties. Alas, we never joined the group and missed out on the fun.

Another long-running tradition was the December trips to Steamboat Springs. We missed those too.

Starting in (at least) 1997 the club began annual trips to Snowmass. We were unable to participate for several years but were determined not to miss out on this tradition! Although we were concerned about the altitude after an unpleasant time at Telluride on an earlier trip, we decided to brave Colorado again in 2003 (as I recall). We returned in 2005 and have done many times since.

There are a couple of ways to follow us on our trip. I've tried to make the narrative a complete summary, but I've used many links to other web sites to provide additional details and sometimes pictures. You can either stick with the basic narrative or explore the various links. At the time this album was created the links were all valid, but the WWW is in constant flux and that can change. If you encounter broken links, please send us some email.
