Default Berthoud People please look

Is Berthoud ready to go? I've never done a LOT of hiking up there, usually just went up a little ways and built a hit so my friends could see me upside down in the powder. I want to drag a friend up there soon and go do a little hiking and riding, plus the resorts haven't had enough snow to make it worth it lately.

Well, if the resorts haven't had much in the way of snowfall neither will Berthoud. You are going to have to go up high to get turns and nothing will be gauranteed. If you go I would look at the North side of Russell. I've seen a trip report from there earlier this year. Expect just under the snow hazards. A bite from a snow snake this time of year could be very serious. So pick your lines carefully and ride conservatively. I am not even sure if you could ride all the way to the Current Creek parking area.

Another place worth looking at would be Butler Gulch. That area has it's own micro climate. So the six inches or so of snow Berthoud and Winterpark got could be over a foot back there.

Either way, take pics if you go and post up how it was.

I think I'll wait until we see a few good dumps. All my boards are in too good of shape to bash them over rocks like that When I do go I'll definitely get some pics though.
