In the Rocky Mountains in the middle of winter, there’s no better way to get from point A to point B than on a pair of skis.
For the older Scouts of Troop 187 in Breckenridge, Colorado, cross-country skiing is pretty much like backpacking. They live at 9,600 feet in a region that gets more than 300 inches of snow every year, and they spend most of their time on skis. Their most recent cross-country trek took them through the Colorado backcountry to several huts in the middle of the Rocky Mountains.
Take a look at photos from their adventure and read more about it in the January 2015 issue of Boys’ Life magazine.
