    Yep, 60's and 70's and sunny in Denver is coming in the next few days. People will forget all about the mountain snow hopefully. It really is all just hype. I could definitely use some sunny days in the high alpine though.

    Pretty simple.
    Please, the entitled dipshits are everywhere. People going to the beach and surfing, people crowding Tuckermanís Ravine and getting that closed down, etc.

    Its so refreshing to see some voices of reason in here. The shaming on social media (and the actual media) of people partaking in low-risk activities that foster their physical and mental health has become toxic. The Sunday morning news on CBS summed it up perfectly yesterday: "Its social distancing, not house arrest".

    Well, a Stay-At-Home Order has been issued and photos of still crowded trailheads are a pretty good indication that many are not heeding the directive.....it's really that simple. Stay at home is being heavily encouraged not only for social distancing purposes, but also to avoid rescue missions that will strain local mountain resources and could potentially and unknowingly expose rescuers to the virus. Yep, it's really that simple.... crazy that's there's no bigger conspiracy working here, right?

    Thanks. It's funny.....no matter how many times it's been explained there will also be those that don't get it or don't think it applies to them. I've been down and out for nearly 2 weeks......so no surprise I'm a little behind here. Good news is I won't get this shit again!

    Except that the stay at home order specifically allows people to leave their home:

    To engage in outdoor activity, such as walking, hiking, nordic skiing, snowshoeing, biking or running. For purposes of outdoor activity, state parks will remain open to the public to engage in walking, hiking, biking, running, and similar outdoor activities but all playgrounds, picnic areas, other similar areas conducive to public gathering and attended areas shall be closed."
    The outdoor activity exception applies to all outdoor activity where it is possible for social distancing requirements to be met, and despite a common misconception, there is absolutely no restriction on the distance of allowable travel to participate in outdoor activity.

    While there may be no hard distance restrictions on where you can go for physical activity, people are being strongly discouraged from traveling outside of their home town/city to do so.

    Incorrect, here is the full text of the exception. Notice it states "by way of example and without limitation".

    3. Engaging in outdoor activity, such as, by way of example and without limitation, walking, hiking, nordic skiing, snowshoeing, biking or running. For purposes of outdoor activity, State parks will remain open to the public to engage in walking, hiking, biking, running, and similar outdoor activities but all playgrounds, picnic areas, other similar areas conducive to public gathering, and attended areas shall be closed. For other parks, check with the local jurisdiction and follow any requirements for that jurisdiction. Additionally, the permitted outdoor activities in this PHO do not include activities that would violate the Social Distancing Requirements defined in Section III.F, below.
    F. Social Distancing Requirements. To reduce the risk of disease transmission, individuals shall maintain at least a six-foot distance from other individuals, wash hands with soap and water for at least twenty seconds as frequently as possible or using hand sanitizer, cover coughs or sneezes (into the sleeve or elbow, not hands), regularly clean high-touch surfaces, and not shake hands.

    It uses nordic skiing as an example of outdoor activity. It doesn't prohibit downhill skiing. Reading comprehension.

    The thing I'm trying to point out is that is is interesting that they mentioned Nordic skiing specifically at the same time they closed ski resorts. Read between the lines comprehension jack.

    Reading between the lines is not necessary in a legal directive/executive order. If they wanted to ban alpine touring/downhill skiing, they would have explicitly stated as such. They only banned outdoor activities where social distancing is not possible and they even explicitly defined social distancing.

    And yet, people are still asking "What's the difference between traveling 5 minutes and 5 hours?"

    JHFC - just a MODICUM of critical thought, please?

    I just watched a group of 10 people all bent over 6 inches from each other taking off their skis and skins. I witnessed 3 groups of 5ish all together at the grocery store minutes earlier.

    At least where I Iive, not too many taking this seriously despite 3 deaths in the county this week. Pretty small county at this point too.

    Nobody is taking it seriously. Coworkers canít even stop crowding around for no reason all day every day.
