Gotcha - either way - no way I'd stop on that road.

Also - I don't think I'm ever picking up hitchhikers after seeing this wonderfully endearing film:

Element, you kinda left off the title/link to the film.

Think it's something to do w/ the forum's restrictions on linking - if you quote my post you'll see a link to this image:

from the movie - "Hitcher"

I don't think I have ever heard of any problems with hitchhikers on Loveland or Berthoud pass. You're talking about powder hounds here, who just want a quick ride back to the top to get another lap in. I do it all the time at Bert. Likewise I give rides on either pass all the time. It's just how we roll in the west.

Now, if they don't have outerwear on, skis or snowboards, maybe carrying a gun, yeah I'd just continue driving on up the pass.

I always make a point of picking up people whenever I can when going up the Loveland pass. I know that when I start getting into using the BC I would want the same.
