    I yelled a question at a local today about the tornado alley thing and he just gave me a look like he'd kick my ass and moseyed off.

    Decently frozen early thanks to clear skies and stiff breeze. Coverage isn't the best. Just hit the SE bowl and east bowl out of summit lot with scrambling to the snow in Boulder's. Corn ripe about 9-10:30. Didn't hit north as didn't seem to go down to the lake.

    Lots of snow on Argentine and some good beers at Guanella Pass Brewing Company made for a great Sunday!

    Thanks smitch, should be fixed! Argentine was fat, tons of snow on Sunday. It looked like there had been some somewhat recent cornice fall, lots of partially melted but still consolidated debris on the skirt of the chute we rode. Corn o'clock was 0930 on a NE aspect for us. Everything in the surrounded area still looks caked!

    Nice -- which approach did you use? We were thinking of heading towards Argentine or Edwards this weekend.

    We drove up Leavenworth Creek Road/Argentine Pass until we hit snow right by the new cabin up there. Just short of the mine tailings. Made for a 2.5 mile mostly snow-free approach up the north face of Argentine.

    Anyone looking to get out early Sunday morning?

    Im on a quick weekend trip from Utah, and looking to possibly ski Torreys (Emporer, Dead Dog or Tuning Fork) or maybe a Grays/Torreys combo, but also open to things that might be better with reasonable access. Also, has the snowpack transitioned to a more isothermal summer snowpack yet up there? Or if it didnt have a good refreeze(which it doesn't appear that it will), would I expect to be knee deep in wet snow?

    ...and for anyone weary of skiing with new partners...I have 3 years experience in bc, Avy 1, will average 1500'/hour uphill(maybe less at 14), notable descents for the season: Mt Sneffels Snake Couloir, NW Couloir of Pfeifferhorn(LCC), The Sickle(ID), etc.

    ^ I'll vouch for skiATL being a safe/competent/good partner, we've probably toured 30 times or more over the past 2 seasons

    If you are interested in going out tomorrow AM for a warm up a friend and I are likely going to hit something smaller nearby there -- Argentine or Edwards most likely. Couple years bc exp, Avy 1, uphill rate depends on how much beer we drink tonight but not too slow. PM me if interested.

    Remember when it used to rain? This has been one of the driest Junes I can remember in over 20 years. [crosses fingers] not on fire, not on fire, not on fire.

    Please put those campfires out!!! My wife almost certainly prevented a grass fire at Pumphouse. She rolled up at 4 in the afternoon to see an unattended fire with 3' flames and embers landing in the grass 20' away. That fire that was "only smoldering" when you left at 11am, can reignite in the afternoon winds. You are 100' from the river. Bring a bucket. If your not near water, bring an extra 5 gallon just to but the fire out.

    Thanks

    Still able to link up some decent turns this weekend on Mt Edwards. Everything low angled is suncupped, but steeper stuff still skiing well...if you don't mind getting up early since it slushes out by 9:30/10. We were about 30mins late this weekend as Leavenworth Creek Rd was a bit adventurous in the van.

    Half of Italy is there in August. Nice scenery around the pool!
    Something about the wrinkle in your forehead tells me there's a fit about to get thrown
    And I never hear a single word you say when you tell me not to have my fun
    It's the same old shit that I ain't gonna take off anyone.
    and I never had a shortage of people tryin' to warn me about the dangers I pose to myself.

    Hadn't skied Emporer in a couple years, did yesterday and now I remember why. Definitely not fall line skiing. Fun day still. Tuning Forks still looks great too.

    Well shit. If that's the case maybe skis shouldn't go into storage this week.
