    I've been up at breck in closed areas summer and winter and never really had any issues, low profile is the way to go
    You call bullshit as in you don't believe ski resorts can have the legal authority to bar access during off-season? Or you call bullshit as in you think it's bullshit that they can have that authority?

    If the former, well, you are most definitely incorrect. It is a fact specific inquiry, depending on the terms of the lease agreement and possibly other factors, but as a general matter, if those facts/documents justify it, it is legal. If the latter, well, yeah, it sucks and sometimes can be stealthily circumvented.

    Yeah... A Basin was logging the Beavers last summer and slinging the logs out via helicopter. I imagine their lease is pretty clear that they can close that zone to public access so that some Jerry out for a hike doesn't end up in a woodchipper.

    it's god damn public land owned by americans like me so I can do whatever I want on my land
    gov't thinks they can give it away to some big corporation so they can make money
    well that's not too american is it?
    just like the time the ranger stopped me for being on a closed trail who has the right to close trails?
    if we keep closing land to honest to god americans like me everything would start looking like boulder

    I heard from someone today that the CO River runoff already peaked and it was the lowest peak level in recorded history?

    yeah, it was in the denver post or the grand junciton paper that did an article on it, it's peaking this weekend I think
    third worst run off

    the crazy thing is I was just in fruita and the colorado doesn't exactly have that much water in it for may

    seeing the same thing here, even though there is a ton of snow in summit, the blue river isn't exactly flooding and I don't think it's going to

    don't worry because it's not going to rain for the next six weeks and then it will rain every day of july and august

    Scientifically, "peak runnoff" is a squirrely thing. Right now some rivers are running above normal and some are not. In a generally cool and wet time of year up here in the mountains, it has been generally hot and dry.

    Fred, if you are moving, it surprises me that you'd be going to Crested Butte. If you are gonna get the fuck outta Dodge, get the fuck! outta! Dodge. Move to where the livin' is cheap, ride your bike and figure it out.

    IDK about runoff numbers, but according to an Ark River raft guy I talked to, all the reservoirs are at or above 100% of average, so he's expecting flows on the Ark to be pretty consistent this year as the water authorities vary release to provide a steady supply.

    Now, if it doesn't snow next year, water supply is fucked.

    The Gore and Eagle don't seem very large. A longtime local told me and have seen to be pretty accurate is that when Riva run melts off, that is your Gore peak.

    I wouldn't believe anything you read on the internet
    Just trying to get people all bent out of shape about CB's soon to be had demise by going Epic
    A buddy who grew up up in summit was in CB this winter mentioned how great it was, it was like summit county twenty five years ago
    If and when I bail, been bailing for twenty years now, I am going somewhere cheap and south/west
    Then again if I get some chick from highlands ranch pregnant then I'm in real trouble
    Actually hoping to knock this girl from aspen up so we can live in her dad's condo together happily ever after

    Did you go up from St Mary’s? How’s coverage? Did you get a look down at Loch Lomond? How low is the snow line down there now?

    Yep st. Mary’s, left the lot around 5:30, coverage was much better than expected, never took skins off crossings the flats (had to walk a bit on the way back), did not look at lommond, here’s a picture looking north that might give you an idea of coverage. Skied off the summit and embarrassingly got ahead of myself and buried myself into some ice chunks and lost a lot of skin on one arm. Got up and enjoyed great corn the rest of the way down

    Yep - at about 70cfs. We heard they are likely going to keep the flow low all summer useless there’s a ton of rain.

    There were some 18”-24” rainbows hanging out in all the deep pools...unfortunately they were laughing at our attempts to catch them.

    SW Colorado needs to squeeze some rain out of the air. Save the lightning.
