That's a lift line?! I would rather hike that hill than queue in such a long lift line

Totally fun. Saw some amazing pics from one of the passes yeaterday. Full on blower. Thin of course but it sounded like at 12k it was around 16".

Keep in mind this was the "freebie". If this doesn't all melt, which it probably won't, there will be real avy danger. There was a woman(maybe a man) killed on a grassy slope with thin coverage like this in the late 90's I believe. Got carried into trees or rocks died from trauma.

There is a recorded avalanche death in every month of the year in this state, so keep your eyes open. It should be obvious and easy to avoid as long as you are looking for it.

Sorry to be the buzzkill. This is fun shit going on right now.

heading up to denver on tuesday, to play a gig at beta on friday.

is it at all likely that abasin or loveland will be open next weekend? i saw BA said something about weds as a rumored opening - don't really care about the insane crowds, just think it would be cool to ride a bit of snow on the way home sometime next weekend... nothing here opens up till 11/16, and we definitely don't have anymore snow, it's all melted now. will probably bring a board just in case!

id be very surprised if either loveland or abasin are not open by next weekend!another smaller storm should roll-in thurs night and cap off the snowmaking. expect one short run at each place.

You say you don't care about the insane crowds... until you actually see them.

You really want to drive all the way up to A-Bay and drop the cash for a single day lift ticket to wait in ungodly lines to make a couple of Chinese downhills on a dangerously overcrowded WROD? More power to ya if you do, but that's what you're looking at.

it's not like i haven't been to costco on a weekend and faced worse lines and people... to get something less cool than an early season shitty run.

i know what i'd be getting into - it's the novelty of it that i'm after, not quality riding time. would most definitely be an 'experience,' i'm sure
