Never seen post an avalanche warning

They have one posted now for most of the central mountains of CO. I'm not surprised. Today at Loveland all of East and West ropes had slid. I'm sure it was from bombing, but I've still never seen that whole thing slide like that. I wish they'd bomb Porcupine Bowl tomorrow. I bet that thing would go HUGE the way the wind was blowing today. The wind was perfect for loading it up.

Another first. I've never seen the signs along 70 and 40 post an avalanche warning and they were doing that over President's weekend. Needless to say the pros are freaked. Rightfully so. I saw people choosing what I would consider unbelievable lines while teaching the Friends of Berthoud on snow. Lines down Russel and Tea Cup bowl. Luckily neither slid, but it wasn't for lack of trying. I have no idea if these people knew the risk they were taking or not, but they were certainly on high consequence lines.
