DrnknZag Does Colorado

What's up my intermountain peeps. Just landed in Denver, headed to Dillon for a few days before heading down to Silverton. Resort riding Sun/Mon, touring Bert Tues, then heading to Silverton. Any tips on best pow near Summit right now? If you're around and want to rip some lines with us, let me know!

Loveland has been . I think they have gotten somewhere in the neighborhood of 20-30" over the past three days. I'd go there. Bert was firing yesterday evidently. I had to skip out on this weekend so we are definitely going to get after it Tuesday.

I was at Loveland on Friday and it was probably the best day I've had at a resort this year. You'll have the best luck with powder and backcountry when you go to silverton though.

Hit Vail today, spent the day out in Blue Sky Basin, lapping Champagne Glade and some sidecountry out past the glade. Really good snow. Breck tomorrow, should be awesome.

Breck was great today. Reported 9", definitely close to 16"+ up top. Getting back to Dillon was interesting. Took about two hours having to backtrack after finding 70 closed. Terrible driving conditions. Berthoud tomorrow.

Bert is going to be firing tomorrow. I am actually hoping the snow report out of Winterpark is only around 6-8" Either way, we will be hitting some serious goods. Might just be a roadside lap type of day, which is just fine. Wear you skittle colored outerwear, I'm bringing my DSLR. You need to be in you photo slutting best.

Mind = blown.....along with my lungs and ass bone. Berthoud was incredible. Gary, you successfully destroyed us. Thanks so much for showing us around your beautiful playground. We're definitely gonna need our day off tomorrow.

Regroup & recover.......Silverton Thursday and Friday.

I had a blast yesterday. It was a great time. I'll try to get some pics up tonight. Definitely feeling hammered this morning. Probably the best day I've had on Bert all season. You guys got a good one in.
