If you look closely at the rocks on the slopes of Mt. Massive, you’ll see a snowboarder making his way down the face of Colorado’s second highest fourteener. After hauling thirty-pound packs weighed down with ski gear up almost 4,000 feet of elevation gain spread out over four miles, the phrase ‘earn your turns’ took on a new meaning. With panoramic views of the Maroon Bells, other fourteeners like Mt. Elbert, and the Upper Arkansas Valley, the summit of Mt. Massive is literally┬ábreathtaking and worth the work.
