Forums Splitboard Talk Forum Good time to hit Utah/CO? Viewing 7 posts - 1 through 7 (of 7 total) Author Posts November 11, 2006 at 8:59 pm #568230 fustercluck 668 Posts I’m planning to drive to Denver in the next few weeks to visit family and really want a good dose of winter, so I’m planning on doing some riding between here and there. I can go for the next week and a half before Thanksgiving, or immediately after. The big delemnas are that there is no snow in the Sierra right now, and I’m jonesing. And my spliity has not been delivered yet (although I can possibly pick it up on this trip), so I’ll be slowshoeing or riding lifts. So the big question is, with the storms lined up to head through the Rockies, is it worth it to head there this week, or would I be better off waiting. Any advice appreciated.

Especially after this last warm spell we had. However this could eventually change after those storms. You can get some decent BC turns in at Berthoud pass for example, but you will hit some rocks here and there. As what the future helds after Thanksgiving it’s hard to tell. There is a long range forecast for about Thanksgiving time (bottom of page from the link above), but that changes usually quite a bit. At least there would be most of the resorts open after Thanksgiving (only part of the terrain though). Tough choice……but have a good time here in Colorado anyway. P.S. To check the CO snow reports and opening dates, see http://www.coloradoski.com/snow/index.cfm November 12, 2006 at 2:09 am #591849 Splitfire 327 Posts Damn,it sucks to be some of you guys. We got another full day of ridin in today. It wasn’t like a full on blower-pow day but it was DAMN damn good. This was my 4th day in the BC this year and i’ve had deep stuff everytime. With the exception of maybe the very 1st day. May post another trip report later. Good things come to those who wait though. But it is out there. November 12, 2006 at 2:39 am #591850 IridePow 288 Posts As mentioned before there are some places where you can find pretty decent stuff: for example Berthoud, or where Splitfire was (Cameron I guess?) Check out this Berthoud report from today over at TGR (it was not me, but I am going there tomorrow): http://www.tetongravity.com/forums/showthread.php?t=67059 November 12, 2006 at 3:22 am #591851 Splitfire 327 Posts Yeah,Cameron Pass. Represent’n!! Berthouds cool,some of those pictures were pretty good. I wish that place wasn’t located where it is. So much fun terrain there. I wouldn’t go to the resorts yet,unless we get a dump b/w now and then. Waste of money,unless your really jonesin i guess. I know i would be. November 12, 2006 at 7:30 am #591852 Unruly Baker 333 Posts It’s always better in CO. Especially Cameron Pass and anywhere in N. CO. It’s consistently deep. UT is bunk. Nothing to see here.

Nothing to see here. UB ^^^Well maybe not yet 😉 Bring a board you don’t mind getting a core shot or two and you should have a very good time. There is a lot of snow around here. We are close to mid season conditions already. Viewing 7 posts - 1 through 7 (of 7 total) You must be logged in to reply to this topic.
