    Saw some pictures from the inspection team I’m going to guess we won’t be going west over the bridge on 50 for a while. The bridge was close to failure. Based on a similar bridge in Kentucky with similar issues I’m guessing months. Maybe even a full replacement.

    So... Bets on which project is finished first- this bridge or the canyon?

    Some in this article. Danno mentioned you guys were discussing this, so poked my head in here. I'm following because planning a family roadtrip in July and I was planning on driving West through here heading home from CB. If it isn't fixed by mid-July, I'll be leaving a day earlier. But that's just an inconvenience for me. This is a disaster for local traffic and commuters.

    In July you can head west over Kebler. And there is a much shorter summer detour (still pretty inconvenient) than the current massive detours.

    Sweet. Thanks. I see the route now. Towing a trailer but it's short (22 feet).

    The rumor is this avalanche incident involving two groups lead to an altercation at the trailhead when Group 1 caught up to Group 2:
    https://avalanche.state.co.us/observ...d-d12ac979fbf4

    "My group and I begin skiing the N couloir on Quandry on Sunday morning around 10:15am. We descended 1 by 1, and after getting about 1/3 of the way down the couloir a group skied on top of us. We had told this other groups our plans to ski this couloir and they could easily see us from the top. They skied on top of us on purpose. All 3 members of the group proceeded to ski from top to bottom. The third skier triggered a wind slab avalanche, that broke with I think was an 8-12 inch crown. The avalanche flushed out the entire last 2/3 of the couloir. It caught and carried a member of my team. we think this avalanche carried him 1000+ feet over rocks. He was partially buried. We performed rescue, while the team that triggered the avalanche proceeded to ski away."

    It's crowded out there. Coordinate with other groups. Use radios. Be courteous. Be wary.

    Karma will catch up with them, that's just sad form. Basically sounds like a classic case of entitlement to the point where they let their emotions of not being the only ones there get to them.

    There is something inside of me, and I know it's wrong, that perhaps the first group were a serious bunch of gapers taking forever and it was getting warm and the other party just was like, fuck it, let's get out of here. I have no evidence whatsoever for that, but just a gut feeling. Doesn't justify the behavior either. Why not just drop Christo then?

    Newspaper article on the incident:
    https://www.summitdaily.com/news/col...ark-avalanche/

    Ugh, why would you talk (whine) to the news paper about this shit? JFC this kinda thing is only going to lead to more policing of the back country and people suing each other for this kind of stuff.

    Because for some people the moral high ground is the most important thing. Life is all about right and wrong and they are always right.

    Two groups went into the backcounty. We'll call them the gapers and the assholes. You know the rest.

    “I’m wildly disappointed by the actions of people who claim to be locals and claim to be backcountry enthusiasts,” Carlson said Tuesday, April 23, in a phone interview.

    It is serious business. I just don't care for homie's hand on the hip, somebody needs to do something about this Karen Style.

    The human element is a big of managing risk. This doesn't end with your group. A savy backcounty enthusiast should have understood the uniqueness of the day and acknowledged that their selected objective, timing and decent protocols places them at risk of skier triggered avalanches from groups above them.

    the headline just cracks me up: "Quandary Peak backcountry skier says group that triggered avalanche on his friend left without apologizing"

    Oh noes, they didn't apologize?!?! Let me go clutch my purse!

    I'm not commenting on the rightness or wrongness of either party's actions, or even on the notion of talking to a reporter. And I know the skiers don't get to write the headlines. But the headline is hilarious.

    It does. But they're supposed to get a ton of rain in Fruita, so biking wouldn't happen. And I don't like the idea of pulling a camper over Vail Pass in a possible foot of snow.

    Yeah - we got driven out of Fruita one Easter because the weather went to hell in a handbasket and we woke up to shitloads of slippery, sticky mud outside the tents at 18-Road. Never even got a chance to ride...
