Stephi, my daughter, has hiked the Bowl many times – sometimes twice in one day! I have never gone to the tippy top more than once in a day but get up there as much as I can. So on the 17th April we FINALLY got to hike to the top and do our favourite line (Ozone) together for the first time!!!!! The top is at 12,342 feet and the elevation gain while hiking is 782 feet. Then there is 2,552 vertical feet of skiing – yippee. At the top there is an old double chair supported by some poles with lots of tattered prayer flags. Here is a picture of us in the chair… From here there is absolutely spectacular views including Pyramid Peak and the Maroon Bells – you’ll need to come and hike it to see the views!
And here is why we do it – what a run 🙂
