I realize that I can be educated on them, but I'm not sure how extreme I want to take my extreme sport?

After 21 years of resort riding I still find great stuff to hit in bounds!
Avalanches are something to be chicken about. They are about as dangerous a thing as you can deal with out there. Weather may be the only thing more dangerous while out in the backcountry.

Conditions are starting to look up around Colorado. Might be heading back up to Cameron again this weekend as that is where the coverage is these days. If anyone is interested in joining shoot me a PM.
