    It was really nice, very civilised! Six or eight people I guess over 40 (50?), is everyone getting old? I thought it was just me. I could kick myself for not getting a pic of the group - all fit and fine skiers! Many dogs and the upper lot is a lovely venue.

    Viva came all the way from Pagosa and on the drive home I was thinking about how Monarch is really at the heart of Colorado. And the skiing was as nice as the company. Hopefully we can get together there again next season with even more people - I am telling you the early season there cannot be beat!

    Thank you to whip.

    Corn snow was great inbounds this afternoon. Winds kept it from slopping out

    Been checking the weather forecasts frequently hoping that it stays solid for a good ski day this Saturday & Sunday.

    The shaft? We saw you and decided to head up to the glacier instead of climbing up right behind ya. How was the snow? And what time did you summit approx? Mostly bulletproof up there but found a decent little vein of soft(ish)

    Looked like great coverage on north facing terrain from my vantage point coming eastbound on 70 while returning to CO from Escalante

    Thanks. CalTopo satellite can be hit or miss. Most the lines we're looking at are NW-NE.

    Planning to pull the camper to fruita on Friday. Weather has me nervous. Don't want to end up a "boat" picture on Georgetown hill.

    Pulling a hardside camper on sketchy roads is not my idea of fun, not sure if we're gonna bail.

    Running Desert Rats in Fruita Danno? I'm in for the half on Sunday -- then touring La Sals on Monday.

    That looks awesome! I've got a few A-Basin days on my Mtn Collective that I need to use this season and I am hoping to get up tomorrow morning... but probably Loveland as I'm only in for an hour or two before needing to be back to shredding my workstation.

    Just... don't fuck it up, and you'll be fine.

    Weather in the desert looks great. I'm guessing you will not be the only one. You only live once. Stay right and put the hazards on if needed.

    Disregard and stay home if you are a bad driving that doesn't have much experience with trailers. Somebody else will take your spot.

    pulling a travel trailer with an underpowered over loaded car/truck on 70 in a snow storm is the new "thing"

    I have a fair amount of experience pulling the camper, but that's a handful of camping trips every year for the past 9 years, and admittedly very little experience pulling it on snow packed roads. I don't mind going slow and putting the hazards on, but only if that's for a short section. Don't want a 5 hour drive to be a 12 hour white knuckle affair.

    Iím not sure that itíll be as bad as you are expecting. Hasnít even been sticking to the roads in Summit. Once you get over Loveland and Vail pass youíll be home free.
    This is also a good reason to store your camper on the western slope.
