The original plan was to hit Berthoud.
However the pass was closed and after a CDOT employee told us it's going to stay like that for a while we hit Butler Gulch.
Good thingÃ¢â‚¬Â¦.. Because they did not even start bombing the Stanley chute until 12:30. By then we were already on our twenty third lap.... just kidding.
I guess they have only one howitzer for the front range and that one was busy over at the tunnel/loveland pass??
So while most other people were stuck somewhere in front of the tunnel or waiting for Berthoud to open we enjoyed an awesome time.
Butler Gulch does not really provide the longest verts, however when you lap it enough, you get plenty of good turns in.
Avalanche danger scale was on high, so we stayed on low angle stuff.
The snow was excellent and deep (18" plus) below tree line. Surprisingly soft after those 90mph wind gusts.
Virgin Powder in front of meÃ¢â‚¬Â¦.. I likeyÃ¢â‚¬Â¦.. I am going to slay this now !!!

Where the heck is my path again? Why can they not just straight line this??!
Wind battered stuff above tree line
Yes, it was still a little windy above tree line
