I was at keystone today. It was coming down hard around 1ish. I went down tiger run and then a second time. My tracks were covered for the second run. NEATO! I was doin my frontside tree rounds.
It was dumping hard. Visibility was around 0. Tracks were not visible at one point because they were getting instantly covered. It was a little difficult, but nice and soft. It was a white out blizzard.
I-70 was shut down for a bit... I left for work early and still got there late. Thankfully I don't have to go on I-70. I-70 sux and caused my commute to take longer.
fuck yea I haven't seen snow come down like that in awhile. Seems like we got about 6 inches in a couple hours early this afternoon at Love. Kept trying to leave....never had so much fun in zero visibility.....

Special Advisory Statement in Effect through 03/23/2013 5:00 PM
The Colorado Avalanche Information Center has issued a Special Advisory Statement for the Steamboat, Vail & Summit County, Sawatch, Front Range, and Aspen zones. Up to a foot of new snow and significant wind drifting have stressed the existing snowpack and produced dangerous avalanche conditions. Backcountry travelers should use extra caution. Large and destructive human-triggered avalanches are likely.
Just a heads up for any of you thinking about doing sidecountry shots.. Probably not a good weekend for that type of terrain. Especially stuff like East Vail with high consequence terrain.
Play smart if you go outside of the ropes this weekend.
