    [QUOTE=Foggy_Goggles;5702259]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?

    Whoa. Pardon me.

    I rember years ago, when I skied more in the spring, there was a thread that shared snow and road conditions for those trying to get after it. Not sure if it was on the main board here at TGR or on teletips, but I lost track of it. A ski partner mentioned this thread recently and I thought I'd try to inforn someone's weekend planning.

    Pardon my fat fingers on a small phone with a not so intelegent AI spell checker for mucking up the name of your fine town. I need a special dialing wand.

    Pardon me for spilling the beans on your secret stash. My sister lives near the place whose name we do not speak and her neighbors were kind enough to show me around. I've never parked there, but can see the potential for parking problems.

    As to Timmie's most excelent ride yesterday, the trail was open, dry and in excelent condition. Just a few muddy spots in the wallows that had well placed dead branches to minimize the damage. I don't know a thing about Headwaters Trail Alliance, but if they closed the trail until June 26 because of mud as their Facebook suggests, and placed timbers at the creek crossings, kudos to them.

    Thanks for respecting the closures. It is not a secret stash. We don't have those anymore. All trails are either on the map (like Idlewild), de-commissioned (which the HTA advocates), or covered in downed timber and beyond the the abilities for users to maintain.

    Ride the trails, we need users. More specifically, we need users who are aware of the access and maintenance challenges and are willing to be part of the solution not the problem. That's were we are at with Red Gate access. Too many uneducated users (local and tourist) who believe it is there right to access the WT Ranch, illegally park on public roads, and don't treat the neighborhood with respect (retarded dog parties, gratuitous weed smoking and beer drinking and generally treating it like a festival).

    Do me a kindness and ask your sister to familiarize herself with the issues (if she has not already) and try to undertake the thankless task of talking to people she sees at the trailhead and impress upon them both these simple requests and just now tenuous the situation is.

    Thanks

    After spending a shitload of time in the mountains this past month, I have to say I fucking love years like this. Deep snowpack all spring, lots of moisture, lush green valleys, healthy rivers and snowpacked peaks in July! This spring/early summer has been just fucking great.

    Heading to Telluride/Ouray area tomorrow afternoon. Any suggestions for lesser-know camping spots that might be open? That is, if any exist anymore. I am sure it is going to be a shit show finding camping with the holiday weekend, but thought I'd see if anyone has suggestions.

    serious crowd at abasin for the open on questionable snow, may give the WROD experience a run for its money. I suspect many will say that they should have gone last weekend for summer snow and skipped today.

    Turned around halfway up hwy 6 at 815am. Place was a fuckin zoo. I gave myself a 0% chance of skiing. Independence day is Halloween with red white and blue. Would it be better without teh EPICs? Certainly.
    I hope they raise prices and keep crowds minimal next year. Provide a better experience for those that want it. Cuz I need to relive my 20s.

    Shoulda got up early and hiked something instaworthy instead. Oh well, lesson learned.
    Anyway. The dirt is nice in Vail Valley.

    the drugs made me realize it's not about the drugs

    that was a good decision, currently around noon; two lines are going up the mountain from all those who skied to the bottom and all those still coming. i'm not an abasin regular but I've seen peak season lines shorter at breck and vail.

    My friend and I bailed on A-Basin at 8 after sitting in dead stopped traffic at the top of Loveland Pass. Had an even better day hiking and skiing the pass (lots of good patch skiing) and grilling. Canít imagine how crowded ABasin must have been.

    Reports were that it was insanity. 3.5 hrs to get to the top. Had friends turn around at 7:15am. Lines worse than opening day. Great way to send off the Epic pass. Buh bye!

    3.5 hours to go from the base to the top via two lifts?! Why? Why do that to yourself? Just to get a pic to post? Seriously, how many people went there just to post on social media about it?

    Yes, buh bye Epic. Go fuck yourself.

    We almost convinced ourselves to go up. A buddy was gonna cook breakfast in the lot, and hang with the family. Maybe get a run in. Decided to sleep in and ride bikes instead. Didn't see a soul on our traditional 4th of July ride one valley over from the Basin.

    Much better plan.

    Somehow I let my friend talk me into it (and it was fun in Ď11) but once we saw that traffic dead stopped on top of Loveland, we retreated to the backcountry.

    Did anyone hoof it up Breckís July 4th Bowl?
