    More after the report. Upper 7 stayed closed but debs/vert gate opened, not a soul in sight for a good 5 or 6 laps with good turns!

    So you have Scummit County and The Valley of Scum to the South? You’re surrounded by Scum?

    Skeptical of WP's reported 3" today. There is a nasty dirty frozen slush layer on the west side of berhoud and at MJ. I guess it is May and the south and east facing has been so baked. Did find some pretty good turns on the north-ish facing slopes on BP. Wonder how much RMNP got?

    This one seems like a winner, it's been snowing pretty hard in CB. Not sticking much with all the bare ground, but I suspect high north faces are in play again. Monarch closed for a while today with CDOT reporting 12-18"

    Was in Crusty Butt earlier today to have one knee examined. Heading home, I'm pleased that I took the 114 to Saguache instead of going over Monarch. Was still pukin' hard.

    Pretty sure people aren’t that uptight about it. What are you, a vicarious CB local like Bunny is to Scummit? 😆

    The Ridge skied great today under a classic CO bluebird sky. Super Bowl, Wild Child, Jelly Roll all were smooth corn/cream cheese after the nice refresh. The cooler wind kept the snow from becoming slush which was nice.

    ^^^Good to hear. Aiming for north side of Torreys tmrw but not sure how much of a freeze we'll get tonight. Tight windows these days. May need to be a stupid early start.
    But colder and snow starting at some point Sun into early next week it looks like

    Torrey’s was very white from the view at the Bakersville exit but I’m not sure what was going on up there today.
    Not sure if this is much help but here’s Torrey’s from Loveland:

    That is helpful SnowShow, thank you. Looks like a rock scramble at the top, if we get that high. May end up being more recon - snow and weather may conspire against us! Thx

    Semi success. Started before 5. Basically Stevens and grizzly gulch junction (can’t drive beyond that now). 2 mile, 1000’ skin to bottom of tuning forks. (Emperor gulch also looked good and filled in - maybe snow through the usual rock choke, hard to see.) Then almost 3000’ booter to summit ridge where snow stops (short of summit). Froze overnight putting a crust on top - good for avy... but storm rolled in and the crust never softened. So 3k of breakable crust descent! Not pretty turns. But was on our list so good to get it in. Plenty of coverage on both tuning forks and emperor. And like a foot of soft cohensionless (non slabby) snow... under that damn 1-2” crust. Another pair was out there plus saw recent tracks in emperor. Someone skinned all of tuning forks recently - impressive, but was an invisible ice track we kept hitting on the down.
    Let’s see what this next storm does

    Emperor - again, looks like enough snow through the usual rock choke; the alternate is to climb/ski lookers right of that choke (you can't see that chute from this angle)

    Speaking of cornices, Wild Child’s cornice at Loveland was impressive Friday. Click image for larger version.

    Surprises me every season that LL Patrol lets it build up that much. There were morons skiing/traversing directly under it the other day.

    Anyone been on Kenosha lately? Wanted to go for an easy dry hike with the gf Wednesday. Not looking good at the moment.

    What month is it, again? You're asking about dry hiking, then talking about driving up to 10,000 feet to start your hike? Does not compute.

    A snowy day, a gift. Feels like we didn't have enough of them this season.
    Live each season as it passes; breathe the air, drink the drink, taste the fruit, and resign yourself to the influences of each.
