Looking to try skiing a 14er or two this winter/spring. Anyone have any opinions on skiing them? Are they worth the trouble and effort? Can you find good turns? I'm just looking for general opinions... Probably looking at trying Quandary because I've hiked it before and i'm familiar with it (i know, i know, everyone does Quandary) and then maybe the Lost Rat coulior (or is Dead Rat??) on Gray's and Torrey's. Let me know, thanks!

Dawson's books are the best text references I have found, recent trip reports can usually be found at: http://www.14ers.com/php14ers/tripmain.php
and I always like to check out Chris Davenports trip reports from a couple seasons ago too: http://www.skithe14ers.com/
Yes, they are worth it (generally speaking) if you time your trips correctly. Conditions can vary dramatically from one range to another, and even from one mountain to another, plus access to some of them can be difficult during the winter/spring without a snowmobile.

I believe the Couloir on Torrey's is called Dead Dog. It looks pretty sweet when conditions are right.
