    Anyone in the lower 48 feeling froggy enough to make a last minute road trip to this event. I just pulled into CO to start my winter of powder chasing and the snowpack everywhere on my hit list is terrible. Would be willing to drive to WY, MT, eastern idaho or of course meet up in CO. driving a newer Tundra, a crew of three wouldn’t be terrible to split gas. I’m 1, anyone else?

    I emailed the only person who’d registered from CO – they’ve already left and didn’t have room anyway. You could try the facebook page as well.

    Major snowfall as we speak. Road’s closed west of Revy last I heard and the conditions have gone into the red. It’s been a really sketchy start to the season up here and we’ve had lots of incidents and a death already. Be careful out there folks.

    Bike helmet wearing quasi rando euros on skinny skis not only lost out on fresh tracks but ass bagged it on the way down. +1 for the splitboarders!
