Sean backcountry skied Mount Princeton (just behind our motel shown in previous post) from the summit a few days ago. This was his 5th try in getting a solid summit descent from Princeton so he can claim it as one of his project to ski all 54 Colorado Fourteeners. I really admire the way Sean is making sure he does a good job of skiing the peaks, rather than making one trip and calling it good. Projects such as his take more time and effort, but are much more rewarding. Congratulations Sean — just a handful of peaks to go!
