This used to be a post with a video, but for some reason the vid got messed up. Rather than deleting the post we’ll leave it as an advisory for those of you who want to ski or ride Mount Sopris, near Carbondale in Colorado. Sopris is a windy place and a big mountain. Go prepared. For lots of info see our Sopris chapter at BackCountrySkiingCO.com.
