Lame winter in CO?
 
I dont know about anyone else but is it me or has the winter here in Colorado(front range) just been super crappy conditions? I've had the 3 mountain/gold medal pass and I honestly feel like Ive wasted my money this year. I know its nobody's fault, it just sucks and I cant believe how little snow we have received this year

That looks like a fun glade. What mountain is that?

It's getting sad around here now, last glade run I did was Okemo, and it was an ice sheet. Ice sheet + tree run= pants shitting terror as opposed to fun.

I don't know what you're bitching about. It's been an average season in CO. Take what you can get, no fresh snow go ride park, go learn to ride switch, go party at the beach at the basin. All I know is I'm 92 days into the season and it hasn't been that bad.

As far as the east getting it for the next 2 to 3 years I highly doubt that.

apparently the metro areas surrounding denver are supposed to get up to 15" of snow tomorrow morning through monday morning. and up to 2' for the foothills and front range. i'll believe that when i see it...

Bust out the 4wheel drive and the tow rope and get out there and do some urban riding.

This has by no means been a crappy winter. I've had several fantastic days in bounds and more than that in the backcountry.

Vail Pass March 9th, easily over a foot.

Hell Grizzly Gulch last weekend was pretty much West Coast powder last Saturday.

Sorry, but conditions have been just fine. You're not doing it right.

Though I am fine with more people having that attitude, makes the drive that much easier.
