I made it up to Copper today. Snow was ok some places and decently deep in others. Overall not a bad day.

Did anyone ride Breck or Beaver today?

I got my first warning of the season and it's over in a few days.

This yellow jacket said I was straight lining and not making turns. Um no, I was riding my base flat cause I wanted to ollie the roller she was standing on. There's only one roller I am not allowed to jump and it was not this one. I think the way they determine your speed is retarded.

I bet after she left to catch me a bunch of bro bras tore through there ollieing over children and spaying everyone. I only went through there because a large group of people were pop blocking paymaster. I choose to take the less crowded routes.

Rode Breck today they claimed 7 in 24 it was more like 2 to 3 except on the south facing aspects. Heavy wet chunder except in some trees. Wasn't bad but once it warmed up it was heavy.

Help control the gaper population have your gaper spayed or neutered.

Conditions have been plain amazing at Bert. I guess I need to throw up some pics. You guys with splits should really get out there. I am looking at you linville and klinger (if you got a split).

Man I'd love to go but horribly unprepared. I still gotta get me the basic beacon/shovel/probe + education. I'd steal Lgorge's split for a little tour in a heartbeat though..I've been hiking all season with some days where we mostly hiked and only got 2 or 3 runs.

Kill it for us man! In the next couple years me and my homie Mike will probably be joining you out there...

I've been getting after it for sure. It has been super nice.

On a side note though, I got to use the new bypass around the East Bound tunnel at Idaho Springs on I70 yesterday. All you weekend guys, get ready to eat a bag of dicks every weekend for the next two seasons. For Sunday Summer travelers, get ready to eat a bag of elephant dicks when you use that. It is going to seriously suck. I suspect I am going to do a lot more stuff in Rocky Mountain, Cameron Pass, and other spots next year. I love Bert, but that thing is going to be a serious traffic jam on weekends. If you are coming to visit Colorado and plan on leaving on a Sunday, I'd leave very early or schedule your trip elsewhere. It is that bad.

I heard that, but I just don't see how. Originally it was a two year construction effort. Maybe they will get the tunnel done by November but not the full road expansion? Everything before this said it was two years, so I think the local news got it wrong. I have a friend who is an engineer for CDOT so when I get a chance I'll ask him to confirm what the deal is. He knows.

I also got some unedited raw video from yesterday of Cody and myself doing the North Chute on Russel. It was pretty good and gives you and idea of what it has been like on Bert for the past few weeks.



Hope you like it...
