Here is a happy DrnknZag right here.


I've got a ton of great photos. Too bad I got over 1k frames to go through...

You guys are going to be doing some serious Billy goating at Silverton the next couple of days. Enjoy the rest.

I should get to edit photos tonight.

Awesome! That must have been right before I tagged my ass on that rock. Can't wait to see the rest of the set.

Made it to Silverton. Talk about a gnarly pass coming in. Unfortunately we might have to reevaluate Friday and Saturday with the weather coming in. Don't want to get stuck in Silverton when we're supposed to fly out Sunday.

It was probably about two frames before you tagged that rock! Yeah that bit sucked.

Do your thing Friday. If it looks like the pass may close on Saturday, you could get out of town and head to South Fork and ride Wolf Creek. Or just bail back to Summit of course. Even Red Mountain pass is rarely closed for more than eight hours.

I got through a few photos this evening. I've got over 1k frames to go through. Probably have around 40-50 good shots in there. I hope to get them done tomorrow.

Yeah, it's great conditions throughout most of CO right now. Getting ready to head up to the Silverton base now. Gonna be an awesome day, not a cloud in the sky.

Silverton was pretty cool. The terrain is amazing. Snow was subpar, they had pretty high temps the few days before our day there. Still got some good lines though. Had to rappel down a gnarly chute to get to the road in one section. My main complaint is the "powder farming." The guide basically tells you to ride within 3 feet of his track, straight fall line. I understand why they do that, but it really kills any creativity with your line.

Overall the trip was amazing. Awesome snow for the most part. I'll put up a good trip report as soon as I have time to edit photos.
