Yesterday morning I took a spin out in Grays which is in the far Northeastern region of Montezuma Bowl that we call the 14'ers. There are three gladed runs out there named after the three 14,000 foot peaks closest to A-Basin (hardly more than a stone throw away). Those runs and peaks are Grays, Torreys and Bierstadt. Over the last couple of summers, the trail crew has cleaned up and enhanced the gladed areas a fair bit. They have really fun tree skiing. As you are heading that way on The Mountain Goat Traverse, be sure and stop at Elk Meadows and look over your shoulder at the expansive view of Montezuma Bowl. One of my favorites.
