    hey killclimbz

    well it is a week away from my vacation to Crested Butte. I am still debating on bringing my splitboard. I mean i know one day my friend and i are going to rent a sled (he owns one and does that a lot) and also i do not have a vehicle to go anywhere. i am staying at CB Mountain itself. i do not know if i can go outside the limits by myself especially. With the weird weather patterns i do not know how avalanche is and things like that. please give me an update and help me out if you can.

    we are suppose to have a storm on wednesday so i think thursday i am going to use the Split for the FIRST TIME!!

    thank you again.

    From what I remember there isn’t much in the way of access gates on Crested Butte Mountain. There might be one or two, but the mountain itself is hemmed in fairly well by cliffs on one side and there is plenty of private land around it. I would definitely bring your split. If you rent sleds, it is likely you’ll end up by Irwin Lodge. Tons of stuff to do back there with snowmobile access. I have never been, but a split may be useful for dropping into and getting out of some of the drainages around that area. Scuykill ridge is also something you can skin into and do in a day. Make sure you and your bud are carrying full avy gear even if you just stay on sleds. The avalanches around here don’t really care what you are on.

    There is a good chance I’ll be going down to Monarch Pass that (24th-25th) weekend. If you are around it’s worth it to get to do that tour. If you can find a ride or vehicle to drive up in let us know.

    Hey Killclimbz

    I might be up to head down to Monarch Pass that Saturday (24th)… however I am also contemplating to hit the Scrubfest.
    I am not sure if I can swing that though with the days off I have.

    I will need to decide sometime soon.

    Oh crap the scrubfest…

    Looks like yet again I’ll have to miss that one 😳 .

    Yeah, let me know. I have also eaten up a lot of my time off and need to save a few days.

    The plan is to hit Monarch Pass this Saturday. I’ll probably get down there around 9am. Who’s in???

    I might be down if things don’t work out for a trip to scrubfest this weekend

    Yeah I hear you. After two years of bailing on the scrubfest I didn’t even bother to say I was going to make it. As it turns out I was right. Really it’s a bummer, because it looks like this year is going to be a great one.

    Let me know if you are going to make it down to MP. iridepow and spthompson are headed down with me from D-Town. Vince is meeting us on the pass.

    Yep, are you interested?

    I know it seems like a lot, but Monarch Pass is typically the best snow in Colorado imo.

    Hey crimpchimp, missed your post before I left work on Friday. We’ll have to get out on the next Frontrange outing. Berthoud Pass perhaps?

    How did the Monarch pass trip go? I just found this website recently and couldn’t get my username authorized in time to try to get in on the trip. I live in Denver but I’m staying down in Pueblo for a few more weeks so I’d be interested in any more trips to Monarch pass and of course anything in the front range.
