    Denver area

    I'll be visiting family in Denver during the week of Feb 21st. Are there any open/ridable trails in the area? I don't mind driving a bit.

    That's a LONG way off to have any idea if there will be any open/rideable trails. Check back on the 18th or so...

    You're as jealous of those fat fat fatty fats as your smilie is green huh

    SS, how's about let's focus our attention on getting IE to go "lay some trenches" with us? I still don't understand how he can't find that would be fun

    IE, we pull like 2+ Gs in some of those turns! I just need to show you how to body english those turns till you "feel" it; SS testify And like SS, you won't walk too well the next day...haha!

    I haven't been *skiing* for very long at all... hell - I didn't even really know how to ski when I moved to CO. I came for the hiking.

    IE,
    1st, we'll go find you some edges, something w/ a bit more bite than a butter knife. I'd lend you a pair of mine, but most are too long and entirely too aggressive for your ability level (I'm guessing)... Then, I'll show you how to trust 'em, at 50+ mph, and dig trenches w/ 'em
    We'll do this over and over again because it's such a friggin' rush when you load up those fatties and pull over 2Gs at the apex of your turn! And, if you do it right at the release of your turn, your skis will actually kick you out (unload) and you'll catch air as you exit your last turn and go into your next.
    What's even more fun is doing this in the bumps! Instead of those little butt-wiggles w/ a lot of knee motion, you GS your way thru them and gap bumps for your turns

    Anyone know of dry(ish) areas for riding this Friday. I'm not opposed to going back to Pueblo if it's dry (i'm in denver).

    Everything on the front range will be snow, mud, and ice.

    Except for D.U.I... which may be dry.

    Are you referring to my barley fee for showing you the voodoo?

    where/what's D.U.I?

    I don't mind wet/snowy as long as it's rideable and not trail damaging.

    Yeah - new fat shaped skis are a lot like 7" bikes.
