About a quarter or a third of Lake Reveal was actually water, the rest was slush and/or ice. Not a single cloud in the sky today. I wore no sunscreen as usual so now I feel like a liquidator coming back from Chernobyl. It feels like my skin is still radiating away the UV rays I absorbed during the day.

Even with the near 70 degree temps the snow wasn't too bad and the slush was fun to ride but not much snow is left. I doubt Abasin could last another week with these temps (at least the lower half).

I was looking around for a car in the lower parking lot with a keg but the only guy I saw was a lone skier with a mini keg sitting by himself. Figured it wasn't anyone from here

That slush and ice sure as hell fooled me. I did my first pond skim on Lake Reveal and ended up on the middle part. I unstrapped and attempted to walk through the slush, it was waist deep. It took my feet about 5 hours to warm back up. Holy shit that water was cold. Imagine if Lake Dillon was also filled with ice cubes. It would be colder than that.



Sunday was very busy and the pond was absolutely hilarious with some awesome fails. Going over the pond on Leenaway was so entertaining. I saw some people fall before they even got to the water. While crowded, it was one of the best closing days in my 8 years. All the typical Basin antics where in full swing They should never close before Lake Reveal shows it's self.

Is there anything still open? My wife just got deployed to the area to handle fire claims (hour south of Denver she says). I don't think I'll go with ... unless there is some really fun riding to be had! If not I'll stay home.

EDIT: I checked and it looks like everything finally closed ...

Yep, everything is closed. Colorado skipped spring this year. We went from winter to full on summer in a matter of about a week. So much for all that late season snow and rain delaying fire season.

Yeah no go on that for sure. There is no access to the fire damaged areas (Colorado Springs), as authorities are still battling and cleaning up. So she isn't going until Monday.

Oh well.
