Trail Ridge Road

So, it opened today for the season.

Look at all that snow! Now, hypothetically speaking of course, let's say I was to go up there, oh... tomorrow morning and build a big ass kicker... legal or no? Would park rangers use my carcass for skeet practice or what?

Hrmmm good question. If it's legal to walk around freely, I don't see why you can't build a kicker.

Eh, screw it. Just saw Mt. Evans is opening up tomorrow morning. That's A LOT closer to me than RMNP!

Although, ever since I worked in RMNP, I've always wanted to send it over that road

I was @ Mt evans yesterday. Saw 2 people with snowboards at the summit. I don't know what they were doing tho cause there wasn't any good lines nor much places to make a kicker? I'd hit Loveland or Berthoud pass or even St marys before evans. I'm not to sure about Trail ridge road but I do plan on taking a trip there sometime soon.

Thanks for the heads up man! I won't bother with Evans then. I think I'm heading to TRR tomorrow.

There is a ton of stuff you can do off of Trail Ridge Road. Ypsilon, Sun up Sund down bowl, and I believe Square Top all have access off of that ridge. Various other options too. I am not super familiar with, mostly because dogs are not allowed out of the main areas at the park. Tons to do there for sure. Building a kicker is definitely legal to do in the park.

Alas, I did not. My fiance ended up getting an earlier flight back into town from visiting her sister.
