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.

Thank you for the I-70 commute report. How would I have made it through my day without it!

Still puking on Peak 8 at Breck. Mounted up the 53 Swallowtail for tomorrow shits going to get unreal.

From the CAIC
Quote:
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.

To go along with what Kill says I slabbed a few minor things playing around just outside the ropes at Breck today. Also saw a big slide from a blast mid morning. Shits heavily wind loaded.
