Full moon over Gore May 13th 2014 by travis young 424, on Flickr

I have the chance to demo the Furberg 173cm split! Holly shit, this thing charges POW! such a different concept than anything i have ever ridden. I still have not tried it on anything but blower and variable, so it’s hard to judge how it will ride on hard pack- but who cares anyways. I am sold on the long radius side cut! Set up with the Phantom's and loving it!

I rode Arapahoe Basin yesterday morning with my son. 85" base with 7" new and snowing off and on all day. Conditions were amazing. Then we went and skinned Uneva area. After that we rode Mt Bike's. Perfect day! Seams like Colorado is the place to be right now. Its still cold this morning too. Killing me looking at the Gore from work, imagining how good it is up there

Nice eric! Got out for one last hurrah last weekend. Yeah, I'm hanging it up. It's been a good winter, time to move onto summer activities.

Cinnamon Pass was plowed to the top, making a lot more options. Did one night of camping, looking for corn. Wind got pretty bad, and clouds were out, make it a bit tricky. Rode a SE face at 1pm, which was perfect. That night it didn't freeze, so we called it and came back. But still did get a pretty fun run. Still a good amount of snow out there about 12K, and not a lot of dust showing still, which is nice. I'm sure independence pass and those areas will be excellent this late spring.

Abby's last shred day, all the way to the road.

CO splitters I could use some help. I was sent to the southern hemisphere for work this winter and didn't get to ride much at all. I will be in Breck for work for the first week or two of July with the possibility of a day or two to spare. I realize it would be minimal ( I do a lot of very early and very late season riding in CA), but I regularly claim "I've hiked further for less". I had a few ideas in my head, A-basin (closed but do they allow uphill in the off season), Independence pass, or a 14er like quandary, or the Africa bowl on Mt. Massive. anyhow any help would be appreciated.

hey hows it going!? Colorado definitely didn't have the same type of awesome summer set I saw last year but still some spots to go play in the snow. not sure how dedicated or how techy you want to get... if your looking for good snow fields for mellow riding there is plenty of stuff left, Loveland ski resort, A-bay, and Loveland pass all have a fair amount of snow left on them. Didn't see great freezes late this season so not sure on couloirs. Looks like tuning fork on torreys peak is still mostly in, not from the top but just a little down the ridge and it looks pretty fat. I have toured out in the indian peaks wilderness recently and they are still holding some good snow. Peak 10 in breck is known for its july ski ability. I was just up in breck doing some jumping and it looks fat on peak 10. I imagine some north facing 14er lines are still in but the slog thru the trees and downhill is pretty hot and dry right now. For me the most bang for the buck with the least amount of work would be somewhere near Loveland pass, maybe citadel or Hagerman are still a good long ski.. hit me up if your around to ride on Friday the 4th of july! I need to get my july day in. :nononno: :mrgreen:
