Loveland Pass - Back country Questions
I have never ridden back country before and was thinking of hitting up Loveland pass sometime in the next few weeks. My questions are:
1. Do I need a shovel?
2. Do I need a beacon?
3. Anything I need to know before I head out?
If I were riding anywhere else besides Loveland pass, I would by all means have a beacon and a shovel - but Loveland pass is pretty crowded for back country...So I'd imagine that the avalanche danger is quite low. But I'm not sure - so I figure it's better to ask 1st.
Didn't want to drop a ton of $$ on snow gear just to ride Loveland pass if it's not needed.
