Big Foot The roads were surprisingly slick on my commute to work today. I'd imagine traffic on 70 will be a shit show.

pls slow down

some of the slickest shit I've ever driven in 20 winters. 29 degrees and snowing.

awd and trucks wiping out everywhere.

my BLIZZAKS barely functioning at 20mph. (non stop traction control and instant abs on every brake)

drive safe.

I bet its not worth saying to this thoughtful crowd, but if driving is something you dont think about or put much effort into, let someone else do it or change your habits pls.

Driving safe even in good conditions takes diligence and care. The brake and gas are not a stop/go function. USE YOUR FUCKING BLINKERS, they communicate with all the other missiles of death flying around the road and helps to dodge each other..

shitty lazy driving is a fucked way to be part of society where traffic deaths are too many by alot.


tldr; i was just gonna say its slippery out there lol

Big Foot I ended up doing a beach day at Abasin on Saturday. Traffic was really bad coming up at 5:30AM, and the lower lot was full by 7:45AM, but there were no lift lines at all the whole day. And traffic coming back at 3:00 was non-existent. I could not have asked for a better day on a holiday weekend. There was even still powder to be found.

KansasNoob I did the math and where I was in Colorado from the 2nd to the 12th got nearly 6 feet of snow. 4 feet at Copper alone this week and last weekend. This was on Monday after 3 days of accumulation.

In all, I spent most of the trip on the Derby. My white helmet is covered in gunpowder residue from riding through where they blasted the previous day. Never had a better trip.

I'm trying to work out a few options with SBF guys and some friends that have friends out there are trying to get me connected as well.

I'm actually a little scared !!! Not kidding. All this snow, tree wells, my board so many new variables. I will stay in bounds and only with a guide that knows what they are doing and if they think my skill will allow me off groomers. 'I want to come home ......

BA I"ll send you a pm if you with my info if your willing, available and tolerant of a old guy that know nothing
I'm not turning PM's on that's opening the floodgate. Shoot me an email if you need to I'm thinking of shooting over to the Basin on Monday as it shouldn't be too busy for MLK Monday.

Snow's good boys. Shit that's normally 20 feet for a drop is like 5 right now up there.
