    anyone been on Buffalo/the Silver recently? Curious what to expect since I'll be hitting it Saturday; will I be doing any downclimibing at the bottom?

    Not unless you ski Maximum Elvis by accident, which is a frequent occurrence.

    Yep, just don't depend on following someone else's tracks. Last year, about this time, multiple groups followed tracks into that couloir and one guy had a bad day when an avalanche, kicked off by his buddies, pushed him over a 50' waterfall.

    Sounds like there's another Elvis skier's right, that's the one I was thinking, didn't even know about one to the left. I have skied the Silver a couple of times, so hopefully won't follow tracks to the wrong couloir. Hopefully.

    You should ride "Elvis's Crotch" , best line up there. Silver used be called Big Elvis, then Little Elvis skier's right. Crotch in the middle of course.

    Good times today. Got too hot to nail all 3 lines that we wanted, but most people are happy with just this one alone.



    Got to make some BIG turns down this one. Good times.



    And one from yesterday.

    Pretty good, though the dust layer is worse than it is up north and snow is peeling off the dust layer on sunny aspects. There are some good examples of this on CAIC.

    Anyone been up around Brainard lately? I know the road is still closed at winter gate, but curious as to conditions up from there.

    50F at Maroon Lake at midnight last night. What a crummy spring for weekend warriors.

    The snow was perfect for the first 300 yards at 11am. The first third was nice but heavy, pretty marginal the remaining 2000'. But it was still sweet.

    It did. It was fun. And I went mountain biking today. Maybe I should post this in the "past your prime" thread, but if I can still hike and ski that, and bike the next day, I'm still doing ok even though 50 is staring me down.
