Didn't hit 80/90s ourselves. Too thin comes to my mind too. Hard to tell from the road though. I didn't find any stumps in HHA.
A little south where those shots were taken we found a rock or two, a few more were uncovered through the trees making the way back to my truck.
Dug a couple pits today on ENE facing slope. Snowpack averaged 65cm deep. New snow was sitting on a hard sun crust around treeline. Higher up a slab was starting to form on a couple inches of facets. Failed CT 14.

Thanks for the extra info.
I think we met at the FOBP on-snow instructor class back in Jan. I'd enjoy touring with you sometime this winter...I french kissed Kelly Kapowski.

Hi all. I am looking for some people to ski some BC with. About me:
Avalanche safety experience: I have 100+ days experience traveling in the BC with a guide (friend) from whom I've learned a lot. This was in CH (from where I move to Denver from). I feel the snowpack there is relatively simple, however, and the reporting better, so I still consider myself a novice to CO BC. I have completed the FOBP avy training last year, and have regularly practiced beacon scenarios and probing. My default is to be extremely cautious. I enjoy the hiking as well and have had two-day tours with no skiing due to questionable conditions. I would prefer smaller groups where the decision making is easier, and the people are similarly cautious. I plan on taking an avy I course this season.
Ability: Almost all of that BC was on a board and snowshoes. When I moved to CO last year I switched to skiing and spent almost all of last year in-bounds to improve (and I HATE the piste!). I believe I am to the point where I can handle myself on most BC runs, but wanted to disclose this so you are not expecting some expert skier.
Other: I live in Denver and would be happy to drive, and could fit two others with gear no problem, three would be a stretch but doable (I have an Audi wagon with snowtires, so I feel pretty confident driving in adverse conditions). I am primarily free on the weekends, but would consider a weekday to take advantage of conditions, contingent to being free at work.
Please hit me up.

HTT -> HHA
Good stuff on Sunday. Got a late start, but got three laps in. Sun/wind didn't do much all afternoon. Cover in HTT was pretty good. Up high was a bit thin but smooth. Better cover down low but a few logs and stumps to watch for.

I like long walks on the beach!!!Live each season as it passes; breathe the air, drink the drink, taste the fruit, and resign yourself to the influences of each.

Anybody want to head up now (from Denver)? Looks to be a nice bright sun shiny day!
If not, I guess I'll head to Loveland in about a half hour"Alright stop what you're doing, cause I'm about to ruin the image and the style that you're used to."

Anyone can hit me up as well for BP - went too often by myself last year. (I'm SJ in the pic above). Might have seen my obnoxious vehicle - yellow FJ with stickered up rocket box.
BTW - Muku, if you're reading this you still owe me poles from last year...
11-18-2009, 11:56 AM #162
That was me that borrowed your poles last year, I think! Been trying to track you down to no avail.
Shoot me an email at fobp_info*yahoo.com and we can arrange their timely return.
Also, welcome aboard the TGR midnight train.

If I can't rope anybody into going to Hahns in the next day and Berthoud gets 6", I might do a couple of HHA laps tomorrow or the next day.
Hopefully someone will come to Hahns though since that's where the snow will be: [ame="http://www.tetongravity.com/forums/showthread.php?t=175409"]11/16/09 Park Range Exploration - Teton Gravity Research Forums[/ame]Live each season as it passes; breathe the air, drink the drink, taste the fruit, and resign yourself to the influences of each.
