Less talk, more stoke.

Went out with Mountain Dog and Andy to scope conditions in Rocky Mtn National Park last weekend. Still pretty thin but fun. Ended up running into inner revolution at the TH. We all headed for the Dead Elk couloir, lookers left of Dragons Tail. We enjoyed a few inches of fresh on top of the crust.

Nice one HFT, MD, and IR. Still need to visit the Park this year, been working too much.

I believe IR is taking his Guide exam this week. Positive vibes to you bro, I'm sure you're going to do great.

Thanks HFT. Hard to believe how poor the coverage is up there, especially on these SE facing lines. At least you guys scored some decent turns and appeared to have decent weather.
