Hagar and Citadel are located in Dry Gulch. I believe they are both in that drainage. One of them might put you in Herman Gulch.

Buffalo, is that big ass mountain on looker right as you drive from the tunnel into Silverthorne. The Silver Couloir on the North-Northeast side is considered to be once of the classic couloirs in North America and it is. It is also a very popular hike at this time of year. No lack of people headed up to the summit. The Silver is popular, but I don't think a quarter of the people headed up there drop the Silver.

The East face of Quandary is a nice long drop. I've done it a couple of times now. Last time was June 14th of last year. Last run of the season for me. The Cristo Couloir is nice and steep, though it may already be melted out to some degree.

I'm looking to do some bc riding this weekend. It's gonna be a solo mission on Friday and then with a group on Saturday and Sunday. With the weather rolling in though, it complicates some of our plans. I'm thinking that the high altitude stuff may be out of the question with the snow in the forecast but the lower down stuff is quickly melting away.

I'm looking for some suggestions for possible places to go this weekend. RMNP might be fun. Anyone know if Hidden Valley is still ridable right now?

Damn BA, you sure have a lot of friends from Denver. I live here and I've got maybe 12 at best

What can I say I'm a super popular guy, they all want to be me or be inside of me.

Saturday is going to be a mixed bag. Kind of looking like dust on crust. Sunday might be a full on powder day. I haven't been up to Bert in awhile, but I got to think there is plenty of snow up there. Probably not a bad spot.

RMNP is hard to guess. Check with Climbing life guides to see what they are reporting the conditions as. They spend more time riding and skiing the park than anyone else I know of.
