Today was a shit show. Tomorrow and Monday morning will be too. Tuesday and Wednesday should be good. Thursday should be alright. Then Friday-Sunday we are in Taos for a national big mtn free ride comp... Those days should be great on the 70 corridor according to predictions.
I was considering going up tomorrow, but on second thought, no fucking way. I'll just get some shit done around the house that I've been neglecting. Based on the forecast, definitely planning on an all dayer on Thursday.
Berthoud Pass was firing yesterday. Went up late. Left my house after 9am. Missed all but a couple of miles of the back up. Stayed out riding the pass until after 5pm. Tons of pow and sunshine. Floral Park was in which for this season is good news. Glorious day. Drive home was a snap too. Today I am guessing the east bound traffic in the afternoon is going to suck ass. Monday will be a full on junk show. I might try for an early start/exit.
Glad to hear the snow is supposed to kick in for about a week. I'm sure Zag will be happy to hear that too.
Couple of friends that I work with went and did east vail on Thursday, before the new snow, and were very lucky. The chute they decided to pass up for the next chute slid from top to bottom. They are both confident they would have died and were glad they made the right choice based on their observations.
