Ascent Trip ReportIf you’re wondering if you should visit the dunes in the winter, I say absolutely. The dunes were half covered with snow and with an outside temperature of around 17 degrees the dunes were stiff from the ice and much easier to hike up than during the summer. Outstanding wintertime views of the Sangre De Cristos made this trip extra special.
