Looks like you had a good time.
That first pic has some sweet lines. Still surprised someone dropped under that cornice though.

I would post a more close up picture, but don't feel like uploading to facebook. Trust us, its there. Solo track underneath the cornice just right of center. Comes down the gut of the path basically.

The ridge in the photo is Schuykill ridge. Amazing terrain a few miles up slate river. The lines are not the easiest to drop into without knowing where u are exactly. And people do regularly drop in under those huge cornices! I was there on sunday and rode a few great laps out past the yogis zone in the snakey area ( lookers right most treed area before u get to the mega exposure zones further down the ridge, just behind the tree in your photo). The ridge has great vert, slope angle and multiple shady aspects to keep the snow great. Just be sure of your line and stability as these lines are pretty exposed. And the best part can be skinning up heart-attack ridge :) If you have been up it before you willl know what i'm talking about :wink: CB has the goods!!!

Conditions are looking better for us Colorado folk. Don't get too confident as we are still in a LPHC Cycle (Low Probability High Consequence)

Haven't seen SouthParkSplitNek in a while; glad your back and thanks for the info! :drinks:

No worries! Been hiding out in the deep snow this season :) Felt great to be out in CB this past weekend and got to ride a few great lines. But we are indeed still playing with a dangerous snowpack. I've been keeping it very mellow, no boarding and touring in no avy terrain mostly. My tour of Schuykill has been the best lines i have ridden this year! Looks like more snow on the way and back to mellow zones for me! Waiting for spring this year till i get out on any big tearrain. Be safe out there everyone! Spring isn't too far off & it looks as if we should have plenty of snow left to get after bigger lines :guinness:

Hey guys I was interested in getting my Avy 2 with Colorado Mountain School.

Let me know if you have any good info on them or advise for my Avy 2.

Not sure how you guys did up north, but we got hammered from the first storm of this series! They were saying 4-9 yesterday, and we got 14" on 1.2 SWE! Also, the second wave is supposed to be bigger tonight, calling for over another foot. So I'd say tomorrow will be a pow day! Sure is going to make some tricky avy conditions, but at least its burying the persistent layer deeper, and hopefully crushing it soon.

Have fun and stay safe all!

We didn't pick up a lot up north. Was tooling around on Berthoud earlier today dialing in the hardboot set up (finally came over to the dark side....it's not all that dark over here by the way). Mostly looking at about 2-4 inches from last night with 6-8 in wind loaded places. Didn't get into anything serious, so I didn't do a full pit or anything; just a little bit of poking with the pole, and it really seems like some of those deeper layers are starting to get put away soon. That being said, I'd agree, it should get a little spicy again with this next storm though, so get your game face on if you're playing in the BC. So jealous of the San Juan numbers....Can't wait to get back down there.

After this weekend I am going to photo dump this thread so hard I plug that shit!!! COLORADO has been off the hook lately. great snowfall, consistently every week, stability is getting better and we are headed into spring with a great snowpack depth wise. RMNP is seriously the best I've seen it in years! Starting our spring set in some higher elevations.

Nice to see some of the Colorado locals shredding the goods!

nice meeting you killclimbz :headbang:

Saturday was a great day in the Berthoud Pass alpine. Surprisingly deep. They got every bit of the 13" reported. Definitely started getting some solar effect on the south facing slopes.
