Looking for more people to tour with. COLORADO, all over the front range, where ever the snow is. Lets start some talking!
I know a couple people on this board :thumpsup: , why is everyone so quiet about riding friends?
I love to shred, I don't mind a long tour but I hope it results in a long run down! :thatrocks:

I ride my close to home spots- Berthoud, RMNP, Jones, and anywhere in Colorado where the snow is good.

anybody doing any 14ers?

any big chutes or couloirs?

I'm looking for more cliffy terrain with launch ramps and funsticles everywhere.

Mostly tour on weekends but down to do some long days and camping for sure.

we are getting snow RIGHT NOW MAY 1st! :bananas:
so whats up who's still riding?

YEP.... :scratch: just as I presumed.. Shredded some jones pass with sleds Saturday and rode some flat light corn at bert on sunday. The plan was Mt Elbert sunday but weather didn't approve. :lol: :lol: we got snowed out.


anybody set to make the first couple days when hwy 82 opens? Hoping to make it down for the weekend and camp a night or two.

Hey Eric! I'm thinking about heading up that way Memorial Day weekend, I have a buddy in Aspen who wants to ride Indy Pass... Will keep you posted.

When do they open the road?

From what I see on CDOT looks like the 23, the Thursday before memorial day weekend. MIGHT take Friday off and ride Friday- Saturday.

The gf is getting slightly annoyed that my winter just keeps going... so probably not the whole weekend like I wanted. :cry:

I need to check again but I think they are claiming some good deep snow out there still. All this late season love is helping keep things filled in.

It has been an excellent late season. I should have gone up yesterday day. Looks like it was yet another powder day. For such a crappy start we are finishing with a snow pack similar to the 10-11 season. At least in the Central and Northern mountains.

Conditions in Central CO are great! i have been skinning Uneva pass in the evenings after work this week and its been fun. hard to beat 7:45pm pow turns. I have not had time this last week to get to serious, but you all should see the lines my buddies are riding in the Gore! getting warm today but i imagine the snow is going to hold up well for a while and the biggest lines of the season are yet to happen. CTG, hoping to see you at Indy pass the 24th! I hope the snow is as good over there as it is up Uneva?

:rock: :rock: :rock: late season excellence! shredded some Berthoud Saturday and hung with some splitboard.comers, great people on here for sure! Bert rode great, corning up nicely. Sunday I went to ABAY and did some cornices and a jib park with no jumps :nononno: Chairlifts are just too easy. :doobie:



Travis- not sure the plans for this weekend- I have some kids fired up to go explore some new snowmobile zones, IF those plans fall apart or turn lame I will def try to come camp out. Is that still on? I'm down to get gnarly, been having SO much fun lately :mrgreen:

Don't think I will make it for Friday the 24th, but closing in on a plan to hit Independence on Sat/Sun, maybe even Monday and make my long slog back home late Monday night...

EDIT: changed plans, I will be there Friday and Saturday! Assuming they get the pass opened...

Nice! It looks like the pass will open on time. And, check it out: Aspen Reopening Memorial Day Weekend. Might do Friday/ Saturday on Indy pass and ride the chair with the fam on Sunday. Or something like that.

Anyone going to be at Indy tomorrow (Saturday)? My partner bailed and I was still thinking of heading up for the day.

Sorry, i just now saw this. I had originally planned to go back up Indy tomorrow but we're riding the lifts at Aspen instead. Conditions were very good today. Tomorrow should be good with plenty of folks to ride with, I even think Lou Dawson is hosting some sort of BBQ on the west side of the pass.
