    Forget bikes...

    Gotta figure out how to get down to the SW:

    50" of snow in 48 hours at Silverton.
    25" of snow in 24 hours at Purgatory.
    22" OVERNIGHT at Wolf Creek.



    Hopefully Ithnu is sitting in South Fork waiting for the road to open.

    Let me know when they get 74+" of new powder. I only ride when it's over my head.

    From CAIC-- "upside down storm"-- meaning heavy over soft-- I wish I could go down the first bluebird day just to see the destruction!! This spring could be some sick touring down there as I would guess many paths are going to be flushed and paved

    Like biking, if you can't enjoy yourself on skis/board, YOU are not doing it right

    The Creek

    Went down to Wolf Creek a couple days ago. Epic snow, 2 feet while we were there. I wish that place didn't flatten out so much though, but can't complain with that much snow. I live in Breck, and when they reported 26" over night we reported 2". Summit stinks this year.

    Except that I am in none of those places. I will ski the 5 inches at MJ this morning. Biggest powder day of the year up here.

    Maybe we got a little snow,

    but generally speaking, SW Colorado sucks.
    You guys/gals have it so much better in the Front Range

    Hopefully no one will get killed during the present avalanche cycle. Although the snowpack in the San Juans isn't as faceted as it is in the northern/central Mtns, the basal layers are still comprised of weak snow along with a variety of crusts, buried surface hoar, and NSF from the long dry spell before this last storm cycle.

    Bottom line: Temper your powder fever with some common sense and humility.

    So much snow I almost called a doctor because my pants were excited for more than 4 hours

    The first one is me hauling through some trees, the 2nd is my friend Jeremy wondering where his line went because he can't see a freaking thing with all that snow flying around.

    Yup. Its not that steep of a mountain so even with skis my friend had to watch his speed. Poles don't do sh!t when there is 4 feet of fresh snow underneath you

    But once we found a few glades that we worry free for keeping speed we lapped them over a dozen times Saturday, not many people down there Friday was great but Saturday was in my top 20 all time days, and that's from 15 years of riding.

    We really didn't get that many pictures, we were too excited.

    Fine, I'll save it again. I'm enjoying the beer that made Milwaukee famous while waiting for the pass up to Wolf Creek to open at 8am.

    Yeah, sounds to me that some peeps didn't get out and now have snow envy. FEET of snow, def doesn't suck. Even if you're a knuckledragger.
