    Yea, that's like saying there is no such thing as bad snow, only bad skiers. If that was true, people wouldn't pay big bucks to ski pow and chuters wouldn't hanker for spring snow. Coombs was wrong. There is good snow, and snow that is good for you.

    You can have fun on any surface, but some dirt is so much better, especially if you are trying to build and maintain a berm, lip, or tranny. You can't build berms out of coarsely crushed granite. Silt makes shit lips. Sand makes crap landings.

    Models seem to be a bit more optimistic for the Tuesday storm, and maybe more Thursday -> Saturday.
    FKNA - let's break down the Ridiculously Resilient Ridge, bury this bike talk, and get back to business!

    Maybe once the Loveland volleys finish bootlicking the ridge they can start hiking some Real Dirt in to all the Front Range berms lips and trannys

    I'll be the first to say it - the "dirt" out at Buffalo Creek is garbage.

    That said - I always have fun when I ride out there. Despite the dirt being garbage.



    And full disclosure: I'm a garbage rider.

    There is no way a bike park could make money in the winter.
    Riding in the winter is a fringe sport and most of the time, I’m the only one out there.

    Winter barely exists in the Front Range foothills these days. But yeah, close it down for 2-3 months and have 9-10 months of riding.

    Your dreaming. Rideable conditions vary greatly and I don’t see lifts opening at sunrise during a freeze/thaw.

    Having a lift, governed by the Colorado tramway Board, is $70k before the bullwheel ever turns.

    Seriously lucky today to work BOP again, and while I’m fried after two days....holy cow! Being on course for downhill training was nuts. The sound.....it’s like a race car....those guys are crazy.

    You think $70K is a lot of money? Freeze thaw? Come back when you have real hurdles to overcome.

    Let’s pitch it to the quarry man apparently the value of heritage to the company is mostly as a buffer between his operation and the city.

    "During today’s first and only training run at Birds of Prey, though, Cochran-Siegle had some issues with the snow. The Birds of Prey track is widely regarded as the best-prepared track on the World Cup circuit, featuring the snow wizard Tom Johnston (aka “Cowboy”), the legendary Beaver Creek mountain ops crew working in tandem with the Talon Crew, among many volunteers from local clubs who bust their butts to make the surface something special. With warm temperatures heading into this race series, the crew had a challenge but they lived up to it. Under sunny, blue skies, the surface was buttery and smooth, but the warm temperatures presented some issues.
    Cochran-Siegle didn’t have a good feeling the entire way down. “Well, I would say my skiing today was not race quality and I need to make adjustments based on what the conditions are in order to be competitive,” he said. “The snow didn’t feel good today, but it was still the same snow that everyone else skied on. It’s up to me to figure out how to ski it the way I would like.” 
    Many of the athletes came down saying the course was coming at them fast, especially with the lack of terrain this year due to the lack of snow. Cochran-Siegle felt differently. “It didn’t feel like high speeds to me, just that the skis were moving away every turn especially when under high pressure,” he reflected. “It didn’t matter how hard you pushed into the snow either, there was never a response coming back.”

    I just try to imagine it like you're on a hill in Utah freeriding where it's also loose. Just float and flow!

    Yesterday they didn’t really cause ruts in our area, but when they reset the course and we were trying to clean up dye n sluff, we tried to not get too crazy cuz the snow would come up if you asked it. So we didn’t ask too much, but it was warm. Can imagine it was tough today. Not back until Sunday, so hopefully something is left. Just too damn warm.
