Winter Scene is a special issue of Boulder Weekly, which is available every Thursday throughout the County.

For some, winter is not so much a season as a celebration, a time for rest and preparation — punctuated by snowy adventures, of course.

Winter Scene is our celebration of the season, whether you like to get outside or stay snug by the fire. If a backcountry hut trip in the Rockies of Colorado is on your bucket list, let the experts at Colorado Mountain School give you the guidance you need for a safe and enjoyable experience.

Within these pages you can learn more about how Fort Collins native Andy Sovick creates his comprehensive backcountry skiing atlas, Beacon Guidebooks, which has new offerings this year detailing Rocky Mountain National Park and Cameron Pass.

Enjoy art in the coolest way possible by heading to Breckenridge to watch teams from around the world hand-carve 20-ton blocks of snow into enormous, intricate works of art. Or, stay cozy and enjoy theater offerings all along the Front Range, from classics like Thornton Wilder’s seminal metatheatrical Our Town to out-of-the-box regional premieres like acts of faith, which examines good and evil, the disillusionment of youth, and the power of belief.

And of course we’ve rounded up other events and concerts from around the state so you’ll never have to wonder what to do this winter.

Get out there and celebrate the season.

quintessential winter’

Every mountain guide has their niche. For Zach Lovell, it’s the Alaskan Range in south-central Alaska.

“It’s a mountain range that instills humility,” says Lovell, who has been guiding for 13 years, 10 of those in the Alaskan Range.

For those expeditions, Lovell takes clients (he calls them ski partners) in an Otter plane and they “basically land on this glacier somewhere in the middle of nowhere.” From there, he digs a base camp and makes a powder hound’s dreams become reality.

“Those expeditions have been a unique and very rewarding experience,” he says. “Not just for me, but for the people I’m guiding as well.”

Lovell loves what he does — he nds the mountains therapeutic, and wants to share that experience with people.

When he isn’t touring the Alaskan Range, Lovell is an International Federation of Mountain Guides Associationcerti ed guide for Colorado Mountain School (CMS), based in Estes Park, where he guides trips and teaches backcountry skills courses to help people access those experiences on their own.

CMS has a variety of frontcountry and backcountry experiences and courses catered for skiers and adventurists of all levels from their home base in Estes Park to locations in Cameron Pass and the I-70 corridor. They also have a 2023 Alaska Range permit this year, which Lovell will guide.

This summer, CMS nished building a completely o -grid yurt as their newest backcountry base camp, mountain lodge and education center to service outings in Cameron Pass, just west of Fort Collins. Named the Seven Utes Yurt, it has a wrap-around deck, wood-burning stove and sleeping space for 16 visitors.

Winter programming will be o ered out of the yurt for the rst time this season. Parties can sign up for an education course, guided adventure or reserve the entire lodge. Located in State Forest State Park,

terrain and great snow in Cameron Pass with CMS’ wide program options lets them meet the needs of any person with the yurt.

“Cameron pass is one of the best ski-touring options in the Front Range,” he says.

One of the classes to be taught at the yurt is the AIARE (air-ee) 1 avalanche course.

Lovell taught his rst AIARE 1 avalanche course of the season Nov. 28-30, at CMS’ frontcountry base camp in Estes Park. The course is designed to help people make better decisions in avalanche terrain.

Alex Stroshine was one of the ve participants in Lovell’s avalanche class. Stroshine wanted to learn about how to travel safely in backcountry terrain.

“Traveling on skis in the mountains is the best way to travel,” Stroshine says. “It’s for pure enjoyment and fun. It’s also a really great challenge, an absolutely stunning environment and the skiing is a blast.”

ON THE SLOPES: Colorado Mountain School, 341 Moraine Ave., Estes Park. coloradomountainschool. com, 720-387-8944

Stroshine, who works at an expedition school based in New Hampshire, says his goal is to eventually lead backcountry ski trips. With his rst avalanche training course under his belt, he now has a better understanding of the risks that come with backcountry skiing.

“I think that before the course, I might not have had the appropriate amount of caution going into the backcountry,” he says.

The rst day of class focused on the types of avalanches, what causes them and risks in avalanche terrain. The group went into the eld during the next two days, analyzing nowpack, practicing avalanche rescue and working on tour plans.

Along with frontcountry courses like the one Stroshine participated in, CMS also o ers classes on avalanche skills in the backcountry during three-day hut trips. The longer backcountry stay gives participants and instructors like Lovell extra time to remain in a backcountry learning space and to unplug from life away from the slopes.

“I just think it’s a bit of a quintessential winter experience,” says Lovell, “to just be able to hang out in that backcountry space with the skiing right out the hut or yurt’s back door.”

With those trips, guides get the chance to step away from teacher-student roles in the evenings and build stronger relationships with the group.

“We’re all just a group of humans enjoying the mountains together, and that can be really easy to feel and to appreciate in those hut trips,” Lovell says.

The guiding company is also implementing a new course series geared toward the less-experienced adventurer called the Fundamental Mountain Skills, which is available through the Seven Ute Yurt.

“Those courses were created to make the outdoors even more accessible,” Lovell says, “and to basically make or add some o erings that are really widening how many people can basically be traveling in the backcountry.”

From the Alaskan Range to the high slopes of Colorado, from hut to hut and from frontcountry to backcountry, CMS can prepare you for your next adventure.

Enjoy art in the coolest way possible at the International Snow Sculpture Championships in Breckenridge

Each January, Breckenridge welcomes snow sculptors from across the globe to compete in the International Snow Sculpture Championships. Four teammates are allotted 94 hours to carve 20-ton blocks of ice, measuring 12 feet high, into frozen masterpieces. Each June, the festival committee sends out 250 invitations and a selection committee then decides which teams to invite. Teams are only able to use hand tools such as vegetable peelers, chicken wire, and small saws — no power tools allowed.

In 2022, nine teams competed, six from the United States, one from Ecuador, one from Mexico, and one from Germany. Gold, silver, and bronze medals are awarded to three winning teams. Two additional prizes are also granted, one for the People’s Choice Award and one for the Lothar Luboschik Artists’ Choice Award. There is no cash prize, only glory.

Massive amounts of work go into creating the blocks. Breckenridge Resort makes the snow and the Town of Breckenridge Public Works hauls it to the event site via dump trucks. Once in the town, volunteers stomp the snow into condensed blocks.

The ice festival returns to Breckenridge from Jan. 23-Feb. 1, 2023, but teams have yet to be announced. Viewing is open from Jan. 27-Feb. 1.

To whet your whistle for this year’s 59th annual Snow Sculpture Championship, here are some photos from last year’s competition.

as they look into nefarious scandals and question sexy villains.

Our Town and The Book Club Play , presented by Arvada Center for the Arts and Humanities, Feb. 24-May 21, 2023

Arvada Center, 6901 Wadsworth Blvd., Arvada. Tickets: $30-55, arvadacenter. org

Thornton Wilder’s seminal metatheatrical play, Our Town (Feb. 24-May 21, 2023), explores small-town America and the people who live there. The themes that permeate Our Town run far deeper than witnessing the everyday trappings of a small town. The playwright’s prescribed minimal approach and the intimate space of the Arvada Center’s Black Box Theatre combine for an immersive story of deep truths and the value of cherishing life’s passing moments.

The Book Club Play (March 17-May 18, 2023) starts innocently enough — friends form a club to explore books and discuss together, maybe with a glass of wine. But what happens when a book club is selected for a documentary film and a provocative new member joins? Directed by the Arvada Center’s Artistic Director Lynne Collins, the play treats audiences to Karen Zacarías’ hilarious new comedy about books and the people who love them.

Laughs in Spanish, presented by Denver Center for the Performing Arts, Jan. 27-Mar. 12, 2023

Denver Center for the Performing Arts, 1101 13th St., Denver. Tickets: $35-66, denvercenter.org

An international art festival is about to begin and Mariana, the director of a swanky modern art gallery, has a severe problem: Her showroom is an active crime scene. Laughs in Spanish at the Denver Center for the Performing Arts is part crimecomedy and part telenovela. Stylish and vibrant, this world premiere offers a lighthearted look at the struggles many Latinas go through to gain entry into cultural and artistic spaces that have historically excluded them.

Beacons of knowledge

A decade after his first backcountry skiing atlas, Andy Sovick’s Beacon Guidebooks are mapping terrain better than ever before by Will Brendza

There’s two things Andy Sovick is outright obsessed with: maps and skiing. He’s built his life and career around both.

The Fort Collins native grew up in an outdoor-oriented family, and by high school he was kayaking, climbing and backcountry skiing, engaging in all things mountain sports. It was all he cared to do.

“I just had to go to Fort Lewis College in Durango as a result,” he says.

It was there his interest in backcountry skiing blossomed into a full blown addiction.

“I met a great group of friends where we all went skiing obsessively together every day of the week, whenever we could, between classes, before classes, in the dark,” Sovik says. They’d take disposable cameras with them and take pictures of mountain faces, ridgelines, chutes and other features of the surrounding terrain. They’d then use those photos to plan their next assaults.

“We were just a group of obsessed friends,” he says. “And it was honestly during those years the idea for [Beacon] was born.”

The ski bum college student had stumbled on the drifts of destiny. It would take years to fully manifest, but without knowing it, he was honing skills that would lead him to a career writing and publishing some of the best backcountry skiing guidebooks sold anywhere.

“One of my college friends, a good 10 years after we graduated, was living on the west side of the Tetons and published a little staplebound aerial photo atlas of the Targhee backcountry (in Wyoming),” Sovick recalls. “When he showed me that, a lightbulb went off.”

In 2013, Sovick started working on his very own atlas of Crested Butte’s most popular backcountry skiing areas. He chartered an airplane and took aerial photos of the landscape in the wintertime, putting them together into a guidebook of sorts: the “OffPiste Ski Atlas” for Crested Butte.

Sovick made one for the Silverton zone the year after that. Then his phone rang. It was a mountain guide from Washington state who’d seen his atlases and wanted to make one for Snoqualmie Pass outside of Seattle.

“That’s where the publishing company

was born,” Sovick says. “I had no idea what I was biting off, but I jumped in and we got his product published and ever since then we’ve just been growing a couple of titles per year.”

Which is putting it modestly. In the seven years since Sovick officially founded Beacon Guidebooks, he’s worked tirelessly with dedicated authors, publishing nine atlases for different areas around the country, nine topo maps to accompany the books, and an avalanche rescue guidebook.

This year Beacon is adding seven more maps and three more guidebooks — two of which are for backcountry skiing zones in Boulder’s backyard.

Beacon Guidebooks are unique among their class of outdoor literature. They’re technical, and they go into extreme and minute detail describing the terrain and avalanche danger of different slopes, much of which is in terms newcomers might find daunting.

But that’s by design, Sovick says.

“For a total beginner to backcountry skiing, I think the books would be fairly confusing and intimidating, which I think is a good thing,” Sovick says. That doesn’t mean you shouldn’t use them, he continues, it’s just a good reminder that the backcountry is serious.

“It’s not a place to just jump right in and try it out,” he says. “There’s a lot to learn, and if the atlas and maps are confusing to you, it probably means you should be hiring a guide and taking more education.”

His guidebooks and maps identify the “uptracks” (ascent routes) and “downtracks” (runs). They include general aspects for all zones, Avalanche Terrain Exposure Scale ratings, max slope angle and descent elevation loss for each run, objective hazards, avalanche terrain information, access and ascent information and exit information for every zone. There’s even an “Avulator” table at the beginning to help match a skiers’ backcountry education level to available terrain and conditions.

The guidebooks are light enough to be easily carried in a backpack, and the maps are waterproof and perfect for taking into the field and whipping out on the trail.

Beacon’s newest guidebooks and maps for Colorado are firsts for both the areas they describe. One is for Rocky Mountain National Park (RMNP) and the other is for Cameron Pass in Northwestern Colorado (and a third is for Steven’s Pass in Washington).

The RMNP guidebook was written by Mike Soucy, a lifelong skier and Estes-based mountain guide who’s been skiing the park for two and half decades. You can tell, flipping through the pages of Soucy’s Beacon Guidebook, he doesn’t mess around — this guy skis the big stuff in the way back. His guidebook covers the parks’ couloirs, mountains, peaks, glaciers and glades, describing

them with the kind of intimacy that’s only gleaned from a lifetime of first-hand experience.

The Cameron Pass guidebook was authored by a local Fort Collins ski legend, and Cameron Pass aficionado, Rodney Ley. Ley’s been skiing since the boots were leather and the boards were solid wood, and says his trips to Cameron Pass over the last 50 years number in the hundreds, “at least.”

After all, Ley helped establish Cameron Pass as one of the premiere backcountry zones in that part of Colorado.

“Cameron Pass is absolutely my favorite and that’s because it is completely remote,” Ley says. “The book, for me, was the culmination of a lifetime of sharing and gathering information in that part of the state.”

Sovick knew Ley growing up in Fort Collins. Sovick went to school with Ley’s son, and used to spend his spare time in the mountain shop Ley owned, Sovick’s “go-to” for all things backcountry skiing.

“I spent a lot of time just staring at gear that I couldn’t afford or didn’t know how to use yet,” Sovick recalls with a chuckle. So, when he wanted to publish a book about backcountry skiing in the Cameron Pass zone, he knew exactly who to call.

“He really is the authority on that ski terrain,” Sovick says of Ley. “He is a total map geek and is one of the best authors I’ve ever worked with.”

Which is saying something. Because Sovick has worked with some incredible authors over the years. Beacon Guidebooks wouldn’t have been possible at all without them. “It’s really important to give a lot of credit to these authors,” he says.

Almost 10 years into making Beacon Guidebooks and Sovick says he’s finally getting his system dialed in. The books come together much faster than they used to.

“We have a process now that’s much more streamlined than it was in 2013,” he says. “Now, there’s a few of us in the office that are just hell bent on getting these books made as fast as possible.”

Beacon Guidebooks have come a long way since that first photo atlas of Crested Butte that Sovick published back in 2013. They’re one of the premiere guidebook brands for backcountry skiing, and they’re only getting better. Skiers huddle over them around kitchen tables with friends, planning their next backcountry ski trip — just like Sovick used to do with his obsessed college friends.

Sovick says that’s one of the most rewarding parts of creating the guidebooks.

“I always say the line between planning and dreaming is very blurry and undefined,” he says. “[Providing that for other skiers] is really rewarding for me, for sure.”
