    I live in coal creek canyon, and have been splitting a bunch in the indian peaks. Would love to get a crew of locals that want to ride around here.

    Yo, Wigston

    I’m in the Fort but get out a lot on my splitty. Myself and Jessi Levine(aka the body) have been talking about making a voyage to Hesh-Gnar hill…Rollins. I dont think we’ve ever met but I think you may know Jessi(Evan’s business partner)and a few other mutual friends. We’d be down to join ya sometime.

    I’m in Boulder, but out of town until the 15th. I’ll definitely be doing some 5-7 hour weekday powder tours up in James Peak Wilderness, and maybe Caribou/IPW depending on conditions (new snow and calm winds) when I get back. I don’t get out on weekends as much though to avoid crowds, but sometimes if it’s gonna be good.

    I live on the Peak to Peak HWY, above Ward, right next to the Brainard Lake road. Train mostly at Berthoud though, occasionally Caribou for quick laps. I like to hit the IPW once the snowpack gets deep and stable (17″ fresh at my place, 9,300′, this morning). Generally an overnight to get to the divide in the IPW in winter, but the peaks above Brainard Lake are worth the trip when the days are a little longer and the weather is good.
    Also hit up RMNP occasionally, better access than the IPW for day trips up high.

    Nice. Have you tried skiing the northeast side of niwot mountain just above peak to peak by ward? Looks like potentially good tree skiing right now. Maybe too thick.

    I’ve had some great mid winter action around Nederland, out west of Eldora. Snow is deep and has been stable lately. All below treeline.

    Anyone in for Friday this week?

    I have ridden that area once. The top is decent, but one gets into new growth forests pretty quickly, and there is a lot of bushwhacking to get down to the Peak to Peak. This is not really worth the trouble, as getting to the top is kind of a pain as well, the area does hold good snow though (but not really all the way to the road).

    Yes, below the Sourdough trail is dicey, in my experience.
    It is a slog for a short run, but the view from Niwot Mountain is awesome.
    One year in April we rode a great NW facing snowfield from Niwot Mountain down towards Lefthand Reservoir. low angle, but broad, so you can go very fast, with a great backdrop.
