Longs Peak, Rocky Mountain National Park (pictured above and below)

Start early on this one. Point6 Production Manager, Ryan Connelly and his squad set off at 2:15am this past weekend and reached the 14,259 foot summit of Longs Peak by 7am. They took the loft route up and the keyhole route down. The early start permitted the wolfpack a surprisingly calm summit with beautiful and expansive views. Snow was patchy and mostly avoidable but wet and slick rocks made for a "spicy scramble”.

What we wore: sport colorado ultra light, contender ii extra light 3/4 crew, and the ghost runner ultra light no show tab

 

North Cascades Loop, North Cascades National Park (pictured below)

A recommendation from the Pacific Northwest! The Chain Lakes Loop links together a series of lakes, with spectacular views of Mt Baker and Mt Shuksan, in Washington State’s North Cascade Mountains. Park at Heather Meadows Visitors Center. Bust a move up a well marked trail that leaves from Heather Meadows parking lot, and parallels Rt 542, Mt Baker Highway. This will put you on a counter-clockwise direction, where you will nail the best views. A Northwest Forest Pass is required.

What we wore: rise extra light crew

 

Hahns Peak Lake, Routt National Forest (pictured below)

If your knees aren't up for Longs, this is a great local option in the Steamboat area. The drive up to Hahn's Peak Lake is incredible this time of year and the loop around the lake or the out-and-back trail has minimal (if any) vertical gain. Added bonus: Snacks at the Clark Store or the Hahn's Peak Roadhouse on the way home. 

What we wore: finish line extra light mini
