    Anyone been on Berthoud Pass this week? Is there continuous snow down to the parking lot/road on both the west and east sides? Or are you hiking up a ways to snowline?

    Planned on skiing Berthoud yesterday 6/21 but the melt out on both sides of the road meant a long hike with skis before ski-able snow. So we went to Jones Pass instead and after a short walk on the Jones Pass road past the avalanche debris (and shrine to deceased skier) we encountered more bowls full of corn than we could ski before everything slushed out.

    Where's summer. Below freezing and snowing in Golden Gate Canyon today. At least it keeps the dumbass level motorcycle noise and bicycle population lower.
    Be always sure you're right ó THEN GO AHEAD!

    Itís not a date, itís a sport.TM STOP Boulderizing Golden!

    Was chased off the mountain by windslab and snow sandblasting my face this fine summer day. Nice change from the usual wet slides and rock fall. Made a few nice turns and a bunch of terrible ones. Anybody choose the right line at the right time today?

    Well, the pic was real, but all the articles saying almost 2 feet are somehow adding the meniscus to the totals. Bigger numbers, moar clicks.

    Like showing maps of the EXTREME! wind chill values. Total crap.

    Looking good on Loveland Pass. As does ABasin. They should be able to make it to July 4th? At least?

    Rollins/Corona Pass is still covered in snow. From Winter Park, the gate was closed about 4 miles from the top at the first trestle. I did a bit of patch skiing, but it wasnít what I had hoped for. A short hike gave a view of Forest Lake bowl and it looked full an inviting. Then 2 hours of dry single track from the red gate in Frasier and a close encounter with a large moose.

    Any info on the approach from the east? I assume it is closed at the cut out.

    I'm sure you don't care and I'm sure it is no secret as I'm sure it is promoted all over other parts of the internet but...if you want continued access through the red gate it is best to not talk about the red gate.

    The situation is tenuous at best. There is no legal parking and there is access via public lands. Over the course of the last 25+ years this trailhead has been somewhat viable due to locals working behind the scenes and a tolerant land owner/ranch manager.

    Over the course of the last 5 years, there have been multiple incidents with trespass, retarded parking, disrespect for the neighbors and general entitled douchbaggery.

    My advice, take it or leave it, is park on the side roads away from the blind corner away from peoples driveways, get your bikes on and off your cars quickly and respect the easements.

    This isn't a locals/tourists thing. Recent events have actually features a clueless prominent local. That said

    The Red Gate gets mentioned on Facebook by the Headwaters Trail Alliance. If it's of such questionable status that it should be kept quiet, they don't seem to know it.

    Clear enough? Self entitled bunch of public funded but not publicly accountable grandstanders that love to have a volunteer work day to get one turnpike done just to have there picture in the paper. Go read there 100+ commissioned mission document/ manifesto full of excuses about what they can't get done. They are on thin ice. I hope the county commissioners pull there funding and we handle public land advocacy at the government level.

    Bored? Do me a favor, ask on there Facebook Page where you are supposed to park. Maybe start with "I see that there is no parking on County Roads. I heard about an incident when the Sheriff was giving ticket?"

    Wait? I just looked at their page. https://www.facebook.com/pg/Headwate...=page_internal Is the public access currently closed and yet Timmie is posting about riding it?

    To be clear, my bitch with the HTA Alliance is not about the Red Gate, it is about things like how much their budget, their attitude about historical motorized use, their god complex regarding system/non-system trails, and their general attitude and closed mindedness.

    Many people don't know that we pay a .3% sales tax in Grand County that goes toward public lands. I don't think it is well spent.

    Skied the bowl off trail ridge road this morning and it was pretty good. Light freeze overnight above 11,500' or so, and no issues with postholing/boot penetration below that. Left the parking lot around 7:30. It was a little firm up top, perfect half way down and a little soft at the bottom. There is a little bit of suncupping, but not enough to interfere with skiing yet.

    Looking down the boot pack:
