I see a lot of this in Colorado resorts, I don't get it. I can fit a drink, sandwich, Contour camera and a pipe/weed in my jacket or pants. Wtf are these guys bringing up the hill?

maybe stuff a pillow in it and try to fall in it instead of the butt?

Good idea. I think I'll need two backpacks- one for the front and one for the back. Although I don't know how much of a fashion statement that'll be...

Depends on which Colorado resorts you are talking about. At Vail, I would be guessing East Vail riders. Saw a lot of tracks coming out of that zone driving home from Palisade on Monday. You should be carrying full avy gear out there. For other Front Range spots, not so much. I suppose it could be peak six lappers or something like that. Loveland has legit access too, but I doubt very many people are getting after that right now.

I rode with a small Camelbak last season. I like having water with me when I want it. I also has a power bar or two, board tool, extra layers and such.

I found it especially helpful when riding at any decent sized hill with more than one lodge.

Just don't go packing everything you own into it.

That's true, but most of those guys you see are clearly just cruising groomers.

The only time I wear a pack inbounds is when we've had a big snow storm. Anywhere from 3-6ft of fresh! I'll carry a beacon, probe and shovel. Besides the tree wells, There's one area (Quail Face) that's not covered by patrol, plenty of signs when hiking out to; "Avy Danger" "no patrol" etc etc.. Quail Face has slid in the past, so I'm not taking any chances...
