    For all the negs keystone gets I think it's a fun mountain when it snows. You can easily rack up 40,000 vert by 2:00 there if that's your thing. Long runouts on every lift, but lots of vert.

    The snow back there is several feet deep of fresh. Gonna be a long difficult skin. Steep slope near the hut might be dangerous.

    Whelp, I just got approval to finish my PhD primarily working remotely in Denver*. After over 5 years of intermittent skiing and doing long distance with the wife (so she can ski regularly), I am just beyond stoked to catch the second half of the CO season. Move won't be finalized for a few weeks, but I hope to ski a lot of dawn patrols and half days starting April at the latest. Hope to be posting in this thread a lot more. This avy danger put a bit of a damper on our plans to tour this weekend in RMNP. But inbounds should be amazing, minus crowds.

    I think we'll probably end up at Loveland on Saturday. We should make a turn or two.

    Sounding like my plan for Sat. Green Freeride jacket. Hoping it's a Bibby-worthy day. May throw Protests in the truck just for shits and grins.

    According to whom? Here are you options starting yesterday:

    a. really crowded ski areas
    b. potentially dangerous backcounty
    c. drive as far away from the city as you can and cross your fingers

    It is what it is. The hype train can't be stopped. It is yet another snowy weekend during the beginning of spring break in a state that is bursting at the seems with probably a cool million season pass holders (IKOM, epic, MC, other). This is skiing today. It will be slower in the spring and midweek. If you can't get used to it, take up a different hobby or move to the Alps.

    Maybe. ...or maybe the I'm just over the both the doomsdayers with a bad attitude about the crowds injecting themselves into the mix and the too cool for school experts that think that they can out maneuver the crowds yet still end up in the mix with a bad attitude.

    But seriously, I could use an internet consultant. I suck at it. You available? I'm gonna need some whitty memes and .GIFs however. It looks like you program in BASIC.

    I feel like this didn't get much attention yesterday:

    WTF was the cat operation on Jones pass doing taking clients into the area during extreme avalanche danger yesterday? One client buried and killed now.

    I'm curious about this as well, I'd heard that they had some people buried in an avy, but I hadn't heard that there was a fatality.

    It is a fatality https://avalanche.state.co.us/caic/a...ep&view=public

    Enjoy Loveland. Enjoy Colorado. Enjoy the drive. I'm not pinning anything on you Auv and Jess. As mentioned, I suck at the internet. Your also a PHD, you should be my internet consultant. You must be smart. The interview process starts now, I need memes.

    My apologies if this is incorrect info and I'll take it down if it is, but Fritz doesn't seem like the kinda guy to post bad info:

    Really sad to hear about the fatality.

    Haha, we suck at the interwebz as well. But it would be fun to ski with you sometime. Always enjoy your take on avy stuff and wx.

    Thanks for the congrats everyone. No PhD yet -- have to be careful I work enough and actually graduate sometime soon instead of skiing too much...

    Thanks for posting that, I hadnt seen that report. It's always unfortunate to see people pass as a result of doing something they love.

    That was the last I heard until this morning. The other guys in the group thought he was going to make it. Terrible news. RIP.
