    Checking in from Ft. Collins

    I’m getting stoked for the season. Getting a good crew together, bought some new boots, looking at some replacement poles today.

    I’m going to go up to CP to get some first runs of the season for me.

    If anyone wants to meetup hit me up though a pm

    I normally ride RMNP, CP, the ‘Boat, and the I-70 shit show. I got the RMSP this year for the chairs.

    got any pics norv?

    Finally got a fake gopro I’ll be bringing. Didn’t have a memory card for last Wednesday with it though. Ava danger was high so we just built a kicker.

    I am hopefully getting the Jeep back today, so I should have some photos soon. Trying to go up before I do the rest of the work on it, but we will see. I do have some early season stuff, but most of it is on my buddys mac and he doesn’t visit these forums.

    This is the diamond from the 19th. Sadly, the only thing on my mac at the moment. You probably want to mute the sound because it’s my deaf dog yipping in the background, and the filmer breathing heavy. Dog hasn’t gone with me since, but that’s a different story.

    Meant to say CP over RMNP not or. I went back and edited it.

    Bear Lake TH is a great spot to start exploring. May still want your rock skis, but I’ve heard of people skiing Dragon’s Tail early season before avi danger is too high. The Terrain Park usually holds some good snow. I was skiing Hidden Valley two years ago around this time, no problem. RMNP has everything, man.

    Cameron has a lot, but it seems the quality for effort ratio is to high on the effort compared to RMNP. Built a jump up there Wednesday and it took a few hours to just get in and out. That was going back to were we knew the area, had a GPS and only had to set a skin track the last half. Still had some trouble trying to snowboard out. Access just seems easy at RMNP compared to that.

    Enough Beta…. Who wants to come up here and check it out, see what its about? I’m unemployed and would be willing to do anything from day to camping trips. Only problem is I’m currently stranded in the Fort until the Jeep comes back to life (sometime next week) or a new truck shows up…

    I’m on the colorado state splitboard team (unemployed) at the the moment. Bummer is the Jeep is in the shop getting a new oil pump and I need tires and some work after that to trust it again. Yada yada yada….

    Been riding Cameron quite a bit, nothing bad to say about it as long as you stay away from the Diamond on the weekends. Hoping to head to RMNP once I get a ride there. For some reason people like to ride C.P. over RMNP. Still trying to figure that out… Both are great terrain, but RMNP has a lot to offer from the Bear Lake TH.

    Heading to C.P. tomorrow. If it is anything like Sunday it will be deep. Thankfully temps are warming up.

    Retail splits are expensive. DIY is great for me, especially looking the price comparison between factory made and DIY splits.

    Awesome idea!

    Rough Estimate: How difficult/expensive will these be to get made and sent to the U.S.? You are In Australia, correct?

    Went to CP on the 19th. Got a core shot, took the dog out for the first time, and meet some great people. Can’t wait to head up next weekend!

    Attached is my “stoke” filmed by Kev-O, a buddy who may just be a lurker here.

    First days of the season for work I’ll be taking off. How fast you planning on selling out? If I check this thread weekly will I be good?
